Test & Trace

Testing and tracing plays a key part in the ongoing coronavirus response.  Rapidly detecting people who have come into close contact with any Covid-19 case would enable the NHS take swift action to minimise the transmission of the virus.

Test & Trace Forms    In order to do our part to assist the NHS we have introduced Test and Trace Forms in order to maintain records of visitors at every mass and service in church.  The information provided on the forms will be released to the NHS, only if required, and will not be used for any other purpose.  Forms will be kept securely for 21 days after which it will be securely disposed of.  

NHS Test & Trace App    The NHS Test & Trace was launched on 24th September and is available to download for anyone over 16 years of age.  This app is only available for smartphones.  One of the app’s major features is a scanner which can scan QR codes at venues to let it keep track of places the user has visited.  We have a QR code for our church and it is now displayed in various points in the church porch.  Those who use the App will no longer need to fill in the form but just scan the code using the app before the enter church.  Our stewards will be around to show you how it’s done, should you need any help.
