Covid-safety guidance for Shops and Branches

The Covid-safety guidance for Shops and Branches has been updated to confirm specific requirements for Betting Shops with the Test & Trace system.

In order to ensure that betting shops are able to remain open, you must:

  • Ask 1 member of every party who visits your premises to provide their contact details to assist NHS Test and Trace.
  • You must have a system in place to ensure that you can collect that information from your customers and visitors, and provide this data to NHS Test and Trace, if it is requested.
  • Display an official NHS QR code poster, so that customers and visitors can ‘check-in’ using this option as an alternative to providing their contact details. Official NHS QR posters can be generated online. Organisations must have a system in place for people who do not have a smartphone or do not want to use the NHS COVID-19 app.

Also to clarify that workplace canteens open to staff only do not need to collect data for NHS Test and Trace.
