COVID-19 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.

It has a number of features:

  • Trace: find out when you've been near other app users who have tested positive for coronavirus.

  • Alert: lets you know the level of coronavirus risk in your postcode district.

  • Check-in: get alerted if you've visited a venue where you may have come into contact with coronavirus, using a simple QR code scanner. No more form filling.

  • Symptoms: check if you have coronavirus symptoms and see if you need to order a test.

  • Test: helps you order a test if you need to.

  • Isolate: keep track of your self-isolation countdown and access relevant advice.

You can download the app here
