The NHS ‘Test and Trace’ app launch

You may be aware that the NHS has launched its ‘Test and Trace’ app on Thursday 24 September.

As part of its introduction, venues such as pubs, restaurants, hairdressers, leisure centres, gyms, theatres, cinemas, local councils, places of worship and more will, by law, have to display an NHS Test and trace QR code poster from Thursday (24 September).

The app is available for smartphones only – not tablets, smartwatches or other devices.

To get started, go to Android’s Google Play or Apple’s App Store and search for “NHS Covid-19“.

The handsets must have Android 6.0 (released in 2015) or iOS 13.5 (released in May 2020) and Bluetooth 4.0 or higher. That excludes the iPhone 6 and older versions of Apple’s handsets.
