COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Oh thank goodness. Purple is safe. I would buy a purple only tin with my name on every year from John Lewis. Will be doing the same again this year from the quality street website now that it’s online.

Can we have a @Peter_G poll on the best Quality Street?

I feel like the next step for a Poll Master is to bring along the next generation of pollsters. I’m here for quality polls (pun intended).

They’re made in the factory in our town, do you want me to walk down and ask for an emergency order :thinking:

Does anyone understand how the police can have your data from the T&T app to check if you’ve kept to isolation rules when the app is meant to not identify you? I’m confused as I thought the system was decentralised and privacy focused.

The data doesn’t come from the app. It comes from T&T.

So if you get a positive result, you have to isolate at an address you provide.

Ahh so it’s the pen and paper T&T the articles in the news today are referring to about the police?

No, it’s not the pen and paper lists in shops. It’s when someone tests positive and they give details of their contacts to the centralised Track and Trace service. At least, that’s my understanding.

But now would the police get my name and address if I’ve just used the app? My data is private isn’t it?

As I said, my understanding is they don’t get it from the app.

Perhaps this will help. Consider the following scenario:

Person A tests positive.
They’re contacted by the track and trace service to ask who they been in contact with.
They give details of persons W, X, Y and Z.

That’s what the police have been granted access to.

It’s nothing to do with the app.

It is if you are called by Test and Trace and told to self-isolate, police will now have access to that data.
