About ten per cent of South Australians have been lying about their contact details on forms filled out when attending venues like cafes and restaurants.

A recent poll found that 1 in 10 people have intentionally recorded incorrect details, usually out of privacy fears.

Meanwhile, most venues are using pen and paper forms for their contact tracing provisions, despite hygiene concerns from patrons.

On top of those not providing their details, a further 14 per cent said that they believed that providing their details was not necessary because they had already downloaded the COVIDSafe app.

Under current rules, SA has mandated that venues record patrons’ contact information, before destroying it after 4-8 weeks.

Fines of up to $100,000 are in place for venues who break the rules.

42 per cent of South Aussie respondents to the survey also said that they are concerned about having their details displayed for all to see, while 28 per cent of South Aussies voiced their concern that venues would use their details for marketing purposes.
