A new NHS app to enhance and support the test and trace service and help protect loved ones is available tomorrow, September 24, and everyone can visit their app store and download it.

It is available on Apple and Android smartphones and is easy to download –just search for ‘NHS Covid-19’ on the app store.

The app will support and enhance the NHS test and trace service and help health professionals to understand quickly if the virus is spreading in any particular area and  Wiltshire Council is encouraging residents to download it.

Businesses such as pubs, restaurants and cafes are legally required to display a QR poster for the public to scan and log their attendance as they enter the premises. For those who don’t have the app, they can still log in their attendance at the venue using the business’s own alternative system.

The app also allows people to report symptoms and order a COVID-19 test.

Wiltshire Council will also have QR posters up at their public buildings, such as hubs, libraries and leisure centres.
