Coronavirus (COVID-19) – business contact tracing

Thurrock Council is contact-tracing for COVID-19 alongside the NHS. If one of our contact tracing teams phones your business to ask for employee contact details, you must provide them. After phoning, we will verify the request by email from a 'thurrock.gov.uk' address.

By law, COVID-19 is a notifiable disease. Sharing personal identifiable data, by secure means, is permitted under data protection law in the interest of protecting public health. For guidance, go to GOV.UK: coronavirus (COVID-19) – notification to share information.
