A new NHS COVID-19 app has launched across England and Wales.
The app will log close contacts with others (based on time and proximity) allowing users to be alerted if they have come into contact with an active carrier of the disease.
The app also features risk alerts based on the postcode district, symptoms checker and allow users to book a test.
Users are also to “check-in” to venues, so they may be alerted if they have been to a location that is linked to multiple infections.
Businesses are now required by law to display the NHS QR code posters on entry for customers to “check-in”.
The app is available only to those aged 16 and over
