NHS COVID-19 Smart Phone App: promotional materials and instructions in alternative formats
As part of the national Test and Trace service, the NHS has launched an app designed to help control virus transmission, alongside local contact tracing.
The app, which can be downloaded for free on a smartphone, uses QR code technology so that users can scan to 'check in' on their way into hospitality and other public venues, creating a digital record of where they have been that is stored on their phone.
Users will receive an alert through the app with advice on what to do if their phone detects they were near someone later found to have COVID-19.
Government materials to encourage use of the app are available to download as a Zip file and include posters, social media assets and explanation documents in English. Explanation sheets in other languages can be downloaded as a Zip file for the following languages: Arabic, Bengali, Bilingual, Chinese, Gujarati, Polish, Punjabi, Romanian, Somali, Turkish, Urdu and Welsh. An explanatory video about the app is also available on You Tube, in British Sign Language.
