Launch of NHS test and trace app - 24 SeptemberPublished Monday, 14 September 2020
The government has announced the general release of the NHS Test and Trace App on the 24 September, and needs the support of businesses and venues.
The app will be a critical enhancement of NHS Test and Trace in England. It will allow us all to know quicker if we’re at risk of the virus, so we can take action, fast, to protect our communities, friends and families. The app will provide users with local risk information, alert them if they have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive, and very importantly has a built-in QR scanner to check-in at venues.
Businesses and venues who will require QR code posters should use the time between now and the launch date to get prepared. There are two main ways you can help:
1. Read the explainer pack which gives details on how the app will work
2. Follow the instructions on how to download a QR poster for your business or venue
The explainer pack and links on how to create a poster can be viewed on our business support page
