Hi all - Most of you probably know this, but some may not. Giving out your details in pubs and restaurants for contact tracing is still only voluntary. As with masks, it up to the owner of the establishment if they want to serve you or not, but at the moment this is the Government's advice:
'If someone does not wish to share their details, or provides incorrect information Although this is voluntary, please encourage customers and visitors to share their details in order to support NHS Test and Trace and advise them that this information will only be used where necessary to help stop the spread of COVID-19. If a customer or visitor informs you that they do not want their details shared for the purposes of NHS Test and Trace, they can choose to opt out, and if they do so you should not share their information used for booking purposes with NHS Test and Trace. The accuracy of the information provided will be the responsibility of the individual who provides it. You do not have to verify an individual’s identity for NHS Test and Trace purposes.'
The underlining bits are my work.
Even hubby (who still half believes what the Government says) doesn't conform. He was about to walk out of a cafe because they wanted his personal details, but they called him back in and served him no problem.
On the minus side, I know 'Nippy' is trying to make T&T in pubs etc. law in Scotland. If she does, then Boris will probably follow suit, like he has with everything else. But as it stands at the moment you can remain anon.
