Each country of the UK has introduced its own test and trace service to help stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). These are:
- NHS Test and Trace service for England
- Test Trace Protect service for Wales
- Test and Protect service for Scotland
- Test, Trace and Protect programme in Northern Ireland
When referring to a specific country’s test and trace service or programme, use upper case. Use lower case for general use.
When contacted by the test and trace service, the person will be asked to self-isolate if they have been in contact with a confirmed positive case of COVID-19.
