QR Code

Short for Quick Response Code, this is a small, square graphic made up of seemingly random black shapes that can be scanned by a smart device. Your smart device's camera 'scans' or 'reads' the QR code and directs you to a website or online form. It's a quick way to access information online without having to type in the web address. QR codes can be used to check in to restaurants and other venues during the COVID pandemic, or to find out more information about a product.
