The NHS COVID 19 APP will be launched on 24 September. We need your support in raising awareness of the NHS COVID 19 App and encouraging other residents to download it to help protect our communities and keep Surrey safe.

Here are some useful links for residents:-

Check in, don’t skip out! If you’re heading to a venue in Surrey look out for the QR code so you can ‘check in’ using the NHS COVID19 App. But first you have to download it here: https://covid19.nhs.uk/ #KeepSurreySafe 

Did you know that if you download the NHS COVID 19 app you’ll get alerts if you’re near someone who has tested positive for the virus - even if you’re on the bus? Get it here: https://covid19.nhs.uk/ #KeepSurreySafe
