Updates to the NHS Test and Trace app mean that every person in a group must check-in when in a pub or outdoor venue rather than just one member.
Changes to the way app users check in to venues and shops on the NHS Test and Trace app have been made ahead of the reopening of hospitality and retail from Monday.
The new regulations now state that everyone in a group must check-in when they arrive at a venue, either by scanning an NHS QR code poster on the app or by providing your contact details.
Last year it was only required that the lead member of the group checked in and not everyone.
If a user has a positive coronavirus test result, they will be required to share their venue history privately on the app.
All venues in England will be given new QR posters to display, which the government says are clearer and easier to use, business owners are now legally required to display these posters.
On Friday, a campaign will begin in England encouraging people to do twice-weekly rapid lateral flow tests.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “As we continue to make good progress on our vaccine programme and with our roadmap to cautiously easing restrictions underway, regular rapid testing is even more important to make sure those efforts are not wasted.
“That’s why we’re now rolling out free rapid tests to everyone across England – helping us to stop outbreaks in their tracks, so we can get back to seeing the people we love and doing the things we enjoy.”
