Vital Test and Trace app launches today - NHS COVID-19

A new, free government-led app - NHS COVID-19 – launches today and is a vital part of the NHS Test and Trace service in England and the NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect service. It’s the fastest way to see who might be at risk from coronavirus. The app has a number of tools, including contact tracing, local area alerts, and venue check-in. It uses technology from Apple and Google, designed to protect every user’s privacy. You can find more information about the app here and in the DHSC’s press release.

FOR INFO: Guidance for health and care workers using the NHS COVID-19 app can be found here. That highlights: “If you’re a health or care worker practising infection prevention and control (IPC), including wearing correct PPE, you should pause contact tracing on your app. Remember to turn it back on after you remove your PPE.”
