Maintaining records of staff, customers and visitors to support NHS Test and Trace
Designated businesses and organisations, including hospitality, close contact services and leisure venues, will also be legally required to log details of customers, visitors and staff for NHS Test and Trace and from Thursday 24 September they will be required to display official NHS QR code posters under law ahead of the NHS COVID-19 app being rolled out nationally next week.
You must register for an official NHS QR code and display the official NHS QR poster from 24 September 2020.
The NHS COVID-19 app has a feature that allows users to quickly and easily ‘check in’ to your venue by scanning the code. The information stays on the user’s phone.
In England, you do not have to ask people who choose to ‘check in’ using the official NHS QR code to provide their contact details.
If there is an outbreak associated with a venue, a message will be sent to the relevant app users with the necessary public health advice. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-54118022
