On 24 September the Government launched the new NHS Test and Trace app. Through the app you can report symptoms, order a coronavirus test, check in to venues by scanning a QR code and help the NHS trace those who may have coronavirus. The app will do all this while protecting your identity and data security. If you haven’t done so already, please download it and help keep our University community safe.
If you or anyone you’ve had close contact with test positive for coronavirus, you’ll be contacted by NHS Test and Trace either by email, text or phone and asked to self-isolate. You will be asked to provide them with information they’ll need to help stop the spread of the virus. Further information on how you will be contacted can be found on our Student Coronavirus page and Staff Coronavirus page (Health and Wellbeing Section).
A newly added FAQ has also been added to the Student Coronavirus and Staff Coronavirus pages concerning where you be able to see the NHS track and trace on campus. This confirms there are some venues on campus that display the NHS QR poster and what you need to do in order to check in whether you have downloaded the app or not, according to Government guidelines.
