NHS Test and Trace App

The new NHS COVID-19 app is now available to download for free on both Apple and Android phones from the Google Play or App Store. It is the fastest way to see if you’re at risk from coronavirus (search NHS COVID-19). The faster you know, the quicker you can alert and protect loved ones and the community.

The app has a number of tools to protect you, and can be used by anyone over 16 to:

  • alert you if Bracknell Forest becomes a high-risk area and tell you what actions to take
  • send you an anonymous alert if you’ve come into contact with someone who’s tested positive
  • enable you to check your symptoms
  • enable you check in to venues (e.g. pubs, cafes, cinemas, restaurants) quickly and easily via a QR code scanner

The app uses proven technology from Apple and Google, designed to protect every user’s privacy. You can find more information about Test and Trace on the NHS website.

Information on the NHS Test and Trace App is available in multiple languages on the NHS website.
