Processes must be in place to ensure that customers provide the required contact information, such as by checking customer phones for the green tick to confirm they have checked in. Records must be provided as soon as possible, but within 4 hours, upon request from an authorised officer.

Note: If a person is unable to provide contact details, for example due to age or language barriers, another person may provide contact details on their behalf. If there are unexpected circumstances which prevent the use of electronic methods to collect contact details (such as an internet outage), any paper records must be entered into an electronic format such as a spreadsheet within 12 hours.

Ensure records are used only for the purposes of COVID-19 contact tracing and are collected and stored confidentially and securely. When selecting and using an electronic method of record collection, take reasonably practical steps to protect privacy and ensure the records are secure.
