It is advised that every individual who enters a venue with an official NHS QR code poster checks into the venue with their own NHS COVID-19 app.

The alert will not give the name of the venue. Read more about how it's decided whether you get an alert.

If you do not have the NHS COVID-19 app, you can still benefit from contact tracing by providing your contact details to the venue. This way, if it is later discovered that other people who were at the same venue at the same time as you, have tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), you may be contacted by NHS Test and Trace or NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect, with advice on what to do.
