With the recent move to ban social gatherings of more than six people, it is now mandatory for premises and venues across England to have a system in place to record contact details of their customers, visitors and staff. This is the latest move to break the chains of transmission of coronavirus.

Details must be stored for 21 days and shared with National Health Service Test and Trace, if requested. There are fixed penalties for organisations that do not comply. Businesses and organisations had previously been advised to collect and share data, with many effectively doing so, however this programme will now be formally mandated from 18 September 2020.
