Venues required by law to record contact details

Premises where people meet socially – including pubs and restaurants – are now legally required to collect customers’ contact details and keep them for 21 days. Fines will be issued to venues which don’t comply. See further detail here.

A new NHS COVID-19 app launches next  24 September, including QR check-in at venues. The Government says QR codes will be an important way for NHS Test and Trace to contact multiple people if coronavirus outbreaks are identified in venues.
