Test & Trace: What do groups need to do?


We know you all keep records of people at your sessions, but you need to ensure you keep these for 21 days. From 14 September 2020 this has been a legal requirement in England. You should also consider printing out a QR code for your venue in England and Wales.  Details on how to create a code are available here.

There is some guidance around positive cases on the link below. We recommend you add the following to any system you use to collect names and contact details or make your volunteers/ participants aware:

‘We will hold your contact details for 21 days following your attendance at an RDA session/ event and share this with NHS Test and Trace or similar (different countries have different names, e.g. Test, Trace and Protect in Wales) if required to do in the event of a positive COVID case as is required by government.’

Don’t forget to include your tracking protocols in your COVID-19 Risk Assessments!
