Maintaining records of staff, customers and visitors to support NHS Test and Trace

Businesses in certain sectors should collect details and maintain records of staff, customers and visitors on their premises to support NHS Test and Trace. There is a higher risk of transmitting COVID-19 in premises where customers and visitors spend a longer time in one place and potentially come into close contact with other people outside of their household. To manage this risk, establishments in the following sectors, whether indoor or outdoor venues or mobile settings, should collect details and maintain records of staff, customers and visitors:

  • hospitality, including pubs, bars, restaurants and cafés;
  • tourism and leisure, including hotels, museums, cinemas, zoos and theme parks;
  • close contact services, including hairdressers, barbershops and tailors;
  • facilities provided by local authorities, including town halls and civic centres for events, community centres, libraries and children’s centres;
  • places of worship, including use for events and other community activities.

More information and guidance on the information to collect; how records should be maintained; and when information should be shared with NHS Test and Trace, is available here.
