The Government’s test and trace programme will bring together the National Health Service COVID-19 app, expanded web and phone-based contact tracing, and swab testing for those with potential COVID-19 symptoms. Each element of the programme has been developed with full regard to all applicable data protection laws.

We have published a Data Protection Impact Assessment and Privacy Notice for the app’s roll out to the Isle of Wight and will provide updates to these if there are any significant updates to the app and before the national roll out.
