The NHS COVID-19 app launches on 24th September across Wales and England and will be an important way to help keep Wales safe.
We’re encouraging people in Wales to download and use the app because the more people that do so, the more it will help reduce and manage the spread of COVID.

It’s supporting our NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect service and will work alongside the existing manual contact tracing system.
What this means for businesses
This doesn’t replace the existing need for high risk businesses across Wales to record details of visitors and customers to their premises.
It is still the law in Wales for high risk businesses to record visitors and to keep those details for 21 days.
This includes pubs, restaurants, close contact services such as hairdressers and barbers, indoor leisure centres and gyms, cinemas, casinos and bingo halls.
