Help control the virus
To protect yourself and others, when you leave home you must:
- wash hands – keep washing your hands regularly
- cover face – wear a face covering over your nose and mouth in enclosed spaces
- make space – stay at least a metre away from people not in your household
If you are feeling unwell, get a test and do not leave home for at least 10 days.
NHS Test and Trace App Pilot
The London Borough of Newham will be piloting the new NHS Test and Trace app, one of only two locations in the UK to do so. We are keen to be part of the pilot because we are determined to make sure that tools work as well as possible for our communities and that we have every opportunity and tool to support communities to manage Covid-19.
As a resident of Newham, if you have received your invitation code, which will be posted to each household in Newham, you can now download the free NHS Test and Trace app on your smartphone.
If you would like further information, please click here for access to the NHS COVID-19 app support page or speak to your Newham Talking Therapies advisor.
