A new smartphone app has been launched today, designed to support the NHS to track cases of coronavirus (Covid-19) and help prevent the virus spreading throughout the community.
Using the app, you can check-in to pubs, restaurants and other hospitality venues, and will be alerted if you’ve been near other app users who have tested positive for COVID-19, so you know if you need to self-isolate. You can also log any symptoms you might be concerned about, book a test, and see the alert level in your local area.
The NHS COVID-19 app is available on Android and Apple devices, and the UK’s major mobile network operators have agreed that people who use it will not be charged for the data usage.
