News from Rushcliffe – Always leave your contact details at pubs, restaurants, hairdressers and public premises to help combat coronavirus
News from Rushcliffe
We are reminding residents in Rushcliffe and wider Nottinghamshire they must by law record their contact details when visiting pubs, restaurants, hairdressers, premises and venues to help track and trace cases of coronavirus.
Businesses and other public settings where people meet socially including hospitality, close contact and leisure venues across the County are now obliged to collect the data to tackle the spread of the pandemic.
Details must be stored for 21 days and shared with NHS Test and Trace if requested. Businesses can now be fined if they fail to take specified steps to collect contact information or taking bookings for groups of more than six.
Businesses and organisations had been advised to collect and share data earlier this year, with many effectively doing so.
Following the recent move to ban social gatherings of more than six people, the data collection programme is now law whether through using a designated QR code available for all at https://covid19.nhs.uk/ through a smart phone or recorded in writing.
Together with Nottinghamshire County Council, we are asking residents to play their part by ensuring a member of staff at each premise always asks for details, or if they are not requested, to inform the authority by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The contact details being recorded at each site should include:
- name of each person in the party
- contact number
- date of visit
- arrival time
- departure time, if possible
