Venues are required by law to record contact details for track and trace.  Pubs, bars, restaurants, hairdressers, cinemas, and other venues or settings where people meet socially across England must have a system in place to record contact details of their customers and staff.  These details must be stored for 21 days and shared with the NHS test and trace if required.

Before now businesses were just requested to do this to stop the spread of coronavirus but since the ban of gatherings of more than 6 people, it is now law that businesses do this.

This is so that if someone who has been to the same place as you tests positive, you can be alerted, anonymously via the app.

The easiest way to do this is to use QR codes.  You can download a free QR code poster via the Gov website which you can put by the door and in other areas. So people can just scan in using their NHS Covid19 App.

The NHS coronavirus Track and Trace app

Is now available to free for people to download and it makes it so simple for people to scan QR codes when entering a venue.

This is another great reason for us to have the app which is the fastest way of knowing when you’re at risk from coronavirus (COVID-19). The quicker you know, the quicker you can alert your loved ones and your community.

The more of us that use it, the better we can control coronavirus.
