Download the Covid-19 App

The new NHS Covid-19 App has been launched today (Thursday 24 September) and residents and businesses are urged to play their part by helping it become a vital tool in the fight against coronavirus.

Residents with smartphones are encouraged to download the app from the AppStore or Google Play, while a wide range of businesses and community venues must, by law, create and display Covid-19 App posters at their venues.

The posters feature a QR code which customers and visitors should scan using the app to safely and securely 'check in' on arrival. Customers will receive an alert if they have recently visited a venue and may have come into contact with someone with coronavirus.

The app also allows people to report symptoms, book a coronavirus test and keep track of when any period of self-isolation is due to end.

People with symptoms, no matter how mild, should immediately self-isolate and book a test by visiting www.nhs.uk/coronavirus or calling 119. Anyone who tests positive for Covid-19 will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace and will be asked to share information about people that have been close contacts recently.

For more information about the app, including a guide for businesses to create their posters, please visit www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/covid-19-mobile-app or www.covid19.nhs.uk.
