Mandatory phone checks to visit a pub

SummitAccording to a report in the London Telegraph, anyone wishing to drink in a pub garden in Britain from Monday (only the outside areas will open) will be forced to hand over their phone to venue staff who must check the individual is registered on the government’s tracking app.

Venues will face fines of £1000 if they are found to be admitting people who have not registered on the NHS Test and Trace app with all their personal details and then scanned a QR code on entry to the outdoor portion of the venue.

"Forced to hand over their (unlocked, obviously) phone to staff". That's a hard no from anyone with any sense of privacy. And it's a slippery slope to requiring the same to police.
