- When visiting the centres, pepole will need to scan the NHS QR posters located at the entrance and within key areas of the building using the app.
- Upon scanning,they will be asked to provide their name and contact details so they can be notified if they have been exposed to the virus
- Records will be kept for 21 days by Everyone Active and who reserve the right to provide the data to NHS Test and Trace if requested.
