NHS Covid App QR Poster

The NHS COVID 19 App was launched on 24 September.

Some types of venues are legally required to display a NHS COVID 19 App QR poster. These are:

• Places of worship

• Tourism and Leisure – museums, galleries, gyms, leisure centres

• Local authority buildings

• Hospitality – bars, restaurants, hotels, cafes

• Close contact services

• Where an event is taking place in a physical location

The app functionality does a number of things. https://covid19.nhs.uk/what-the-app-does.html

It will:

- support traditional test and trace methods

- inform the public of rising rates in their postcode area

- alert them if they’ve been in contact with someone who has tested positive (even if they don’t know them)

- provide a ‘checking in’ function based on QR codes displayed in venues and public spaces

- allow people to check their symptoms, and book a test if they need one

This kit provides information about how to download and display a QR poster in your venue. Including some suggested social media assets for businesses to let residents know that businesses are playing their part by having their QR code posters ready. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/businesses-urged-to-prepare-for-nhs-covid-19-app
