Protect your loved ones. Download the app.
The new NHS COVID-19 app, now available to download for free in England and Wales, is the fastest way to see if you're at risk from coronavirus. The faster you know, the quicker you can alert and protect your loved ones and community.
The app has a number of tools to protect you, including contact tracing, local area alerts and venue check-in.
What does the app do?
Trace: Get alerted if you’ve been near other app users who have tested positive for coronavirus
Alert: Let us know the level of coronavirus risk in your postcode
Check-in: Get alerted if you have visited a venue where you may have come into contact with coronavirus
Symptoms: Check if you have coronavirus symptoms and see if you need to order a free test
Test: Help you book a test and get your result
Isolate: Keep track of your self-isolation countdown and access relevant advice
The app will help the NHS Test and Trace service, Public Health England, the Government and other stakeholders - to understand how and where the virus is moving, so we can take the necessary measures to contain and enable action, alongside our current contact tracing and containment measures. The NHS COVID-19 app tracks the spread of the virus, not individuals.
You can download the App for IOS or Android by searching ‘NHS Covid-19’ in your App Store.
