Victoria makes Covid check-in mandatory at shops after transmissions from 'fleeting' visits | 2 June 2021 | The Victorian government will now require people to check in at retail stores and supermarkets regardless of the length of time they spend in the store, as new data reveals a huge increase in check-ins to the Service Victoria app once the state forced businesses to begin using it.
