Download Free HSE Covid-19 Track & Trace App

Today marks the launch of the HSE’s new Covid-19 track and trace App.
Officially launched by the Minister for Health Mr Stephen Donnelly, it is expected that the app will help with contact tracing as follows:-

Using a system of Bluetooth and anonymous IDs, if a user tests positive for Covid-19, they can give the app permission to anonymously alert other app users that they were in close contact with.

Likewise, if you use the app, you will be notified if you came in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 and who has granted the app permission to share this data.

The Covid-19 tracker application also aims to provide users with real-time symptom tracking and up-to-date information about the virus. It is available to download for free for Apple and Android devices, by clicking HERE.

Hopefully, this application, along with other public health measures and advice, will assist us all in slowing the spread of Covid-19 here in Ireland.

Please note the app may not work for contact tracing if your phone:

  • is more than 5 years old.
  • is not using Apple’s iOS 13.5 or higher or Google’s Android 6.0 or higher.
