Designated venues in certain sectors must have a system in place to request and record contact details of their customers, visitors and staff to help break the chains of transmission of coronavirus.
- Ask at least one member of every party of customers or visitors (up to 6 people) to provide their name and contact details
- Keep a record of all staff working on their premises and shift times on a given day and their contact details
- Keep these records of customers, visitors and staff for 21 days and provide data to NHS Test and Trace if requested
- Display an official NHS QR code poster from 24 September 2020, so that customers and visitors can ‘check in’ using this option as an alternative to providing their contact details
- Adhere to General Data Protection Regulations
Businesses should download the QR codes at gov.uk/create-coronavirus-qr-poster.

The UK is currently experiencing a public health emergency as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It is therefore critical that organisations take a range of measures to keep everyone safe. The easing of social and economic lockdown measures following the COVID-19 outbreak is being supported by NHS Test and Trace. Collecting contact details and maintaining records for NHS Test and Trace is a legal requirement and failure to comply is punishable by a fine. For further information please click here.
