The new NHS COVID-19 app has now launched to the public. It is the fastest way to see if you are at risk from coronavirus. The faster you know, the quicker you can alert and protect your loved ones and community. It has a number of tools to protect you, including contact tracing, local area alerts, and QR venue check-in.
