You can use the COVID Tracker app to:

Why you should track your symptoms

Logging your symptoms each day can:

  • help you remember when you first became unwell
  • be a useful reminder if you need to later speak with your GP
  • help you to get trusted advice quickly
  • help us to map and predict the spread of the virus

The app will keep a record of your daily check-ins for 28 days so that you can review them. Any health information you share on the app is anonymous.

You do not have to track your symptoms for the other functions on the app to work.

How COVID check-in works

Tap on the 'COVID check-in' button at the bottom of the app.

You'll see 2 options you can choose from:

  • 'I'm good, no symptoms'.
  • 'I'm not feeling well today'.

If you have no symptoms

Choosing ‘I’m good, no symptoms’ completes your daily check-in.

If you have symptoms

If you choose ‘I’m not feeling well today’, you’ll be asked 4 questions about the common symptoms of COVID-19.

You'll get the most up-to-date health advice based on your symptoms. But if you have symptoms of COVID-19, self-isolate and phone your GP

Optional information sharing

When you first use the app, you'll have the option to share:

  • the county and town you live in
  • your age group
  • your sex

You can choose to share the information or not.
