A change in Coronavirus regulations announced by the Welsh Government, 14 August 2020, has made it obligatory for hospitality businesses and other high-risk settings to collect contact details of customers from Monday, 17 August 2020, rather than the current approach of voluntary participation. The ‘high-risk sectors’ are those already listed in the existing record-keeping guidance:

  • Hospitality, including pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes
  • Tourism and leisure, including theme parks, museums and cinemas
  • Close contact services including hairdressers, barbers, beauticians, tattooists, sports and massage therapists, dress fitters, tailors and fashion designers
  • Facilities provided by local authorities, such as libraries and leisure centres

Keep an eye on the following link, the latest guidance will be available here soon:
