Contactless Registration and Check-In for in Sanctuary Services

Good day, all. We are working on reopening our sanctuary for services. Lots of moving parts to achieve this for sure. One aspect I’m researching is a Contactless Check-In process and Contactless Walk-Up Registration on site (along with an advanced event registration).

Has anyone used or have opinions on utilizing QR codes or Text (text xxx to worship) for walk-up registrations or contactless check-in using Realm? Thank you.
Not specifically a COVID-19 question, but in tracking ministry follow-up with people who are sick. How do you all handle staying in contact with people who are sick (finding their needs, continued follow-up, etc). We're not a big church and in times past we handle follow-up in an ad-hoc manner. Now with more ppl getting sick AND less actual face time with ppl we are looking to better formalize follow-ups.

I was thinking of using Pathways. Anyone else doing that? If not, what means are you using, if any?
