Coronavirus has been added as a notifiable disease under the Health Protection (Notification) Regulations 2010. Under the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984 and associated Regulations; and the Coronavirus Act 2020 and associated Regulations the Council has a legal duty to store, process and share personal information. The information will be stored, processed and shared as part of the national, and local Coronavirus Test and Trace operations where necessary for investigations, as well as the testing and tracing of individuals, groups or businesses; and to assist in the investigation into cases of Coronavirus; Coronavirus outbreaks and issues of non-compliance with the Acts and associated Regulations. The information will also be used; interrogated and mapped to inform the Councils actions and decision making processes. Any such storage, processing or sharing of information will be done in the public interest in order to promote health and wellbeing.
During the investigation of cases and/or outbreaks of Coronavirus, information which is gathered may be shared between departments within Derby City Council; with other Councils associated with an outbreak; other health services or with other government bodies associated with the control of the Coronavirus. The Council has a duty to notify national Government bodies, such as Public Health England, and the relevant local authority where an individual resides (if different), where there are suspected Coronavirus cases. The Council will disclose the information under Article 9(2)(j) of the UK GDPR (processing is necessary for reasons of public interest in the area of public health, such as protecting against serious cross-border threats to health), and confidential information may be lawfully disclosed in the public interest, without consent, where the benefits to an individual or to society outweigh both the individual’s and the public interest in maintaining the confidentiality of such data.
The Council may contact staff, service users, residents, patients, businesses and premises with messages relating to Coronavirus by text, phone, letter or e-mail. This contact is not direct marketing; therefore we do not need your Consent before contacting you.
