Update to NHS Test and Trace in the workplace - What you need to know

The Government this week has released an update to NHS test and trace guidance ahead of April 12 reopening

From 12 April 2021 

The rules on what you need to do when a group enters your venue have changed. You must ask every customer or visitor to scan the NHS QR code using their NHS COVID-19 app, or provide their name and contact details, not just a lead member of the group.

This is to ensure that everyone receives the necessary public health advice in a timely manner.

Sectors that this guidance applies to

  • hospitality, including pubs, bars, restaurants and cafés
  • tourism and leisure, including hotels, museums, cinemas and amusement arcades
  • close contact services, including hairdressers, barbershops and tailors
  • community centres, libraries and village halls

For the full list see the Government's guidance here.
