Masbro joins the introducing of the NHS Covid 19 APP

The Masbro Centre joins the NHS in the coronavirus testing and contact tracing programme called the NHS Test and Trace service.  Let's all do our part by using the NHS Covid19 App.

The app will help the NHS understand if the virus is spreading in a particular area,  so loca lauthorities can respond quickly to stop it spreading further and save lives. The app does this while protecting auser’s anonymity. Nobody, including the government, will know who or where a particular user is.

How the app supports you

The app has key features that will help you and your community. They will help to reduce your personal risk and the public’s risk too.
Symptoms - If you feel unwell, you can use the app to check if your symptoms could be related to coronavirus.
Test - If you have coronavirus symptoms,
the app will take you to a website where you can book a test to see if you have coronavirus or not.
Isolate - If you have been advised by the app
to self-isolate, the app provides a countdown timer so that you can keep track of how long you need to self-isolate.

How do I help my community?

Covid-19 Mutual Aid UK

In response to the government’s call out for volunteers-

Click here for more infomation.

Remember that there are people in our communities who might want to participate in mutual aid without providing the sort of identification documents that are necessary to engage with the government’s scheme, particularly during a time of uncertainty regarding the extent of policing we are likely to see in our communities.

There are also situations where people seeking help may not feel comfortable or safe accessing government support, but would feel happy receiving support from ordinary people in their communities.

We encourage local groups to keep organising independently from government structures, continuing to follow rigorous hygiene and safeguarding practice and to communicate between each-other to learn and develop community solidarity structures during a time of very uneven support from official bodies.
