Residents and businesses urged to make the most of NHS Covid-19 App

We're encouraging Swansea businesses and residents to make the most of the new NHS Covid-19 app.

Residents can download the new NHS COVID-19 app to help prevent the spread of coronavirus and protect themselves and their loved ones as case numbers rise.

Businesses like pubs, restaurants, hairdressers and cinemas, are being encouraged to have NHS QR code posters visible on entry, so customers who have downloaded the new NHS COVID-19 app can use their smartphones to easily check-in.

Checking in with the app will enable residents to keep a diary of the locations they have visited, which will be held securely in the app. If there is a COVID-19 outbreak linked to their visit, users will get an early warning alert from the NHS.  If they have a positive test for COVID-19, people will be able to use the diary to tell contact tracing teams where they have been, helping to manage COVID-19 and protecting other people.

 

There is more information for businesses here, including access to materials about how to create relevant QR codes: https://gov.wales/nhs-covid-19-app-guidance-businesses-and-organisations
