NHS Scotland’s new Test & Protect tracing App is now available for download.
The App , when downloaded to your phone , will alert you when you have been in close proximity to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19.
The app works in conjuction with the current test and protect procedure – it does not replace it – and enables us to be alerted if someone we have been in close proximity to has tested positive for coronavirus. (This may be through public transport when we are unlikely to know the people we are next to.)
The App will only work effectively if everyone downloads it and so we would encourage you to do so.
The app uses minimal data, works in the background using bluetooth and does not store any personal data from you.
We thank you for complying with government guidance, wearing a mask and protecting eachother.
