New QR Code Check-In System & Poster for NHS COVID-19 app

New QR Code Check-In System & Poster for NHS COVID-19 app

**Updated Advice 29/09/2020**

NABMA has received a number of questions on the subject of NHS QR Codes relating to markets.

Following contact with government officials then they have advised that the Department of Health and Social Care have confirmed “that markets aren’t required to display a QR code but can do so if they wish”.

Businesses are now required by law to display the official NHS QR code posters from today so people can check-in at different premises with the new app.
You should create and display a QR code if you are:

·        a business, place of worship or community organisation with a physical location that is open to the public

·        an event which is taking place in a physical location

If you have more than one venue, you need to create a separate QR code for each location. You can add multiple locations in the service.
You can create your own posters by visiting the government website here:
This poster can be in addition to or as a replacement to any existing contact tracing system in place.
