We’ve downloaded the NHS COVID-19 contact tracing app!

The Isle of Wight is leading the way for the UK in an integrated testing and contact tracing programme. The 3 elements of the programme are 1) NHS COVID-19 app – automated system for rapid symptom reporting, 2) Sending swab testing kits to people who report symptoms, 3) Tracing people who have been near someone with COVID-19. The Island has a population size that will enable the government to evaluate the new programme effectively. Note current lockdown measures remain in place on the Island.
