New measures introduced for social places from tomorrow

Test and trace

As we look forward to welcoming back our pubs, bars, cafe's, restaurants, salons and barbers from Saturday 4th July, please note new measures have been introduced by the Government to help social places stay safe.

All indoor and outdoor venues should now ask you for a name and phone number. These will be stored securely and only passed to NHS Test and Trace if a local outbreak occurs. Your information will be stored for 21 days, after which it should be safely deleted.

Please be mindful and help the NHS Test and Trace service in the national effort to contain and prevent the spread of coronavirus.
