Download the NHS COVID-19 App today and help with Test & Trace
From Thursday 24 September, the new NHS COVID-19 App is available.The app will record when someone enters a venue and scans an official NHS QR code poster, meaning that the venue information will be logged on the user’s phone.
The app can be downloaded via https://covid19.nhs.uk/.
Also it is now a legal requirement for businesses and venues such as community centres and village halls to display their official NHS QR code poster to support the use of the app.
This will allow NHS Test and Trace to contact customers with public health advice should there be a COVID-19 outbreak. An alternative check-in method must also be maintained to collect the contact details of those who don’t have the app, for example a handwritten register.
