The NEW NHS COVID19 app
On the 24 September, Welsh Government and UK Government will be launching the NHS Covid19 app across England and Wales. The NHS Covid 19 app is an important part of our Test, Trace, Protect programme to control the spread of Covid19. The more people who use the app the greater our chances of reducing the spread of the virus.
The app will let you know if you have been near someone who now has coronavirus symptoms, give you advice on coronavirus that is relevant to you, allow you to check your symptoms, take you to a website where you can book a test if you have symptoms and provide a self-isolation countdown timer if required.
