Visitors are being reminded to provide their contact details to businesses in order support the NHS Test and Trace .

To help in the fight against coronavirus, businesses are asking customers to provide their name and contact details when they visit their premises.

Businesses are being asked to keep these records for 21 days as they may be asked to share these details with NHS Test and Trace.

This is important because if you have been exposed to other customers or staff who are diagnosed with Covid-19, you will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace to advise you and what to do next.

Containing outbreaks early is crucial to reduce the spread of COVID-19, protect the NHS and social care sector, and save lives.

This will help to avoid the reintroduction of lockdown measures and support the country to return to, and maintain, a more normal way of life.
