This research addressed the gaps encountered by the current contact tracing process used by the Municipality of Candijay as one of the measures to help combat covid-19. The current process starts with the issuance of quarantine passes and listing its details on the logbooks every time a resident passed on a quarantine control point. The problem is that the quarantine passes can be counterfeited, checking the quarantine passes and writing down the details into the logbooks are time consuming and tracking or the whereabouts of a quarantine pass is difficult to trace. The Bohol Quarantine Pass Tracer (QPass Tracer) is a system developed aiming to implement a contact less verification and validation of the issued quarantine passes with the use of QR codes, minimize the extra job done by the front liners in checking the quarantine passes, easily track the whereabouts of the quarantine pass holder, provide data transparency, provide data portability, view real time reports via dashboard. This is also designed to run both online and offline. and a self-made QR reader app which is specially design for QPass Tracer. The system project was carried-out using the agile scrum methodology of software engineering which steps are collecting user stories, project backlogs listings, task scheduling, development, daily stand-up meeting and product delivery. This system was implemented in the Municiplality of Candijay during the lockdown period. The 21 Barangays and the QCP personnel have benefited from the features of the system.
