6. Test and Trace app
The NHS Test and Trace app allows people to report symptoms, order a coronavirus test, check in to venues by scanning a QR code and helps the NHS trace individuals that may have coronavirus. The app will help the NHS understand if the virus is spreading in a particular area, and so local authorities can respond quickly to stop it spreading further and save lives.
Users' anonymity is protected; nobody, including the government, will know who or where a particular user is. Read further details.
Businesses and venues are asked to display the QR codes, which can be downloaded to display as posters in premises.
Customers and visitors will be able to check-in on entry with their phone instead of filling out a check-in book specific to a business. This will allow NHS Test and Trace to contact customers with public health advice should there be a COVID-19 outbreak.
