As part of the Test, Trace, Protect Strategy the Public Health Agency has put in place a contact tracing service that will get in touch with anyone in Northern Ireland who tests positive for the virus. The process captures where the person has been and who they spent time with, with the aim of identifying any of their friends, family and wider contacts that might be at increased risk of acquiring the virus themselves. Prompt communication with those people can help to reduce the spread.
The Department of Health has built the Northern Ireland app which launched on 31st July – it is called “StopCOVID NI” and can be found in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store .
Further information about the App can be found at the NI Direct website here.
Please consider the information presented below and do whatever you can to stop the spread.
