    NHS App question

    Posted by Jones army on 17/7/2021, 21:56:07

    Hi all, saw a few questions re the app on here earlier.
    I got pinged yesterday and told to isolate for 8 days. Does anyone know when that means it thinks I was close to someone with covid?

      2 days ago. The principle is to isolate for 10 full days after the day of exposure

        3 days ago, 10 days isolation starts the day after contact.

        Yes, I think it does. If you have 'checked in' at a premisses/retailer, someone would have tested positive and been in the same location you visited, it would be in & around the time of your visit.

          Tip.

          Go into 'manage contract tracing' and pause app. (no more getting pinged).

          Take lateral flow test x2 a week, while they are still free, to cover your arse.

          Turn back to active when this pinging shit gets sorted.

            That's good advice. Or do what I did, delete the app.

              Kept mine for those places that insist you scan in.

              Back to pause straight after though.

                You can keep it on pause and still check into places

                      Setting and manage contact tracing (you an deactivate Bluetooth as well).

                      Although the app is anonymous anyway. More so than your phone. you can also delete history on it. If you feel so inclined you can check the matches on the exposure log - it will "match" some id`s without being strong enough to ping.

                        Seems a lot of faff.
                        Just don’t have the bloody app in the first place.

                          Pubs down here insist on it, or a name and number. If the app pings you only you know, if track and trace phone you then they know

                            I just wave my phone in front of that code thingy for a couple of seconds. Looks like I'm 'checking in' but in reality, I deleted the app months ago.

                                If you think the app is fit for purpose, you're clearly even more of a bell end than I previously thought.

                              I just write my name and number down if asked.
                              Places can’t insist on it. Not every old codger has a mobile phone.

                                Just saw on the news, Boris and Sunak both have been pinged but both not self isolating!

                                  I'm not a fan of them, but in the interest of fairness:

                                  "Downing Street said the pair would take part in a pilot programme, where daily tests replace self-isolation.

                                  "They will have to self-isolate when not working and will only conduct essential business, a spokesman said."

                                  So they are self-isolating outside of work and they are only doing essential work, which I guess makes sense for such important roles (whether we are happy with the people filling those roles or not). Add in the daily tests, and it doesn't seem like they have a huge amount of freedom.

                                    Call me cynical, but it's funny how no-one else has heard of this "pilot scheme" or has been asked to take part in it.

                                      According to the report that I read, twenty organisations are taking part including TfL, Network Rail and Border Force.

                                      Yes I have read the entire statement but couldnt be bothered to post all that.

                                      Yes they are doing essential work, but what about the businesses and employees that cannot afford to self isolate in the remote chance they may have it?

                                      The governments pay for isolation is only for the lower paid people so many businesses will struggle with this pinging as well employees.

                                      Its stupid really anyway, as its not even a legal requirement to isolate if your pinged so its your choice

                                      There you go. Predictable.
                                      One rule for them, another for us common folk.

                              Go into 'manage contact tracing'. Bottom option on front page of app and then pause it at top.
