Providing details to NHS Test and Trace

With relation to the Covid-19 pandemic, Monarchs Gymnastics Club is required to ‘collect details and maintain records of staff, customers and visitors on their premises to support NHS Test and Trace.‘ 

We are then required to share these details with NHS Test and Trace where requested to identify people who may have been exposed to the virus. Containing outbreaks early is crucial to reduce the spread of COVID-19, protect the NHS and social care sector, and save lives. This will help to avoid the reintroduction of lockdown measures and support the country to return to, and maintain, a more normal way of life.’ Click here for full government guidance. If required, Monarchs Gymnastics Club will, therefore, provide gymnast’s names and their parents’ contact details to NHS Test and Trace if required.
