“With Covid-19 spreading rapidly throughout the midlands – including Lichfield and Burntwood – now is the time to download the NHS App” says Michael Fabricant.
“No personal data is stored centrally so ‘Big Brother’ won’t be able to track your movements. But the app will tell you if you have been in close proximity to someone who has Covid and will also provide other, more general information regarding Covid regulations, what the level of Covid infection is in your postcode area, and enable you to check-in easily to venues using the inbuilt QR code scanner.
“With fines having been increased for not wearing a facemask and not self-isolating when required to do so, the app is particularly useful. It can be downloaded for Apple and Android phones though works best on those newer than 5 years old.”
