The NHS Covid-19 contact-tracing app will officially be rolled out on Thursday September 24th.

It uses Bluetooth technology to track time and distance between smartphone devices. It also offers a QR code check-in capability, allowing you to book a free test and also has an isolation countdown timer to remind people to quarantine.

The Government is urging businesses including pubs, restaurants, hairdressers and cinemas to ensure they display the NHS QR code posters on entry, enabling you to use your smartphone to easily check-in. This is designed to allow NHS Test and Trace to contact customers with public health advice should there be a further COVID-19 outbreak.
