NHS Covid-19 app: now available for download
The NHS has released its Covid-19 app to assist with the test and trace system. The app can be used on most modern smartphones and is compatible with Apple's IOS operating system and with the Android operating system. The app can be downloaded from the Apple App store or from the Google Play store.
The benefits of having the app on your smartphone are:
It will quickly alert you if you have been in close contact with someone else who has the app on their phone and has tested positive for Coronvirus.
It will anonymously notify others you have been in close contact with if you enter a positive Coronavirus test result on your app.
It will inform you of the Coronavirus risk level in your local area.
It will allow you to check in to venues using a QR scanner so that you can be notified quickly and anonymously if cases are reported associated with that venue.
