NHS COVID-19 app – QR codes at Public Health Wales sites

Please check in when you visit one of our sites.

As you may know, on the 24th of September, the NHS COVID-19 app launched across England and Wales.

The app supports the NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect service and will work alongside the existing manual contact tracing system.

A key feature of the app is that it allows users to record when they visit a venue by “checking-in” when they arrive using the venue’s QR code. The app is then able to alert users if they have recently visited a venue where they may have come into contact with a positive Coronavirus case.

These QR will be on display in all kinds of venues across Wales, from businesses and organisations to hospitality venues. This includes all Public Health Wales sites.

We therefore encourage all staff to download the NHS COVID-19 app from the Apple app store or Google Play store, and to make sure that you check in whenever you attend any one of our sites.

The venue-specific QR codes will be on display upon entry to the Public Health Wales areas within each building. 

When you enter, open up the app and use the ‘venue check-in’ function to scan the code. It really does take a matter of seconds!

If, for whatever reason, you are unable to download the app, or just haven’t got round to it yet, you are required to sign in by hand using the paper sign-in sheets which will be available in each building.

Please note that, if you attend multiple sites, it is important that you check in when you arrive at each individual site.

And if you attend any one of our sites multiple times a week, or on a daily basis, please make sure you check in every time you attend.  

It is incredibly important that we all take the time to do this to support Track and Trace efforts, and we thank you in advance for your support.
