You can pause contact tracing within the app by moving the contact tracing toggle on the home screen.
If you’re a health or care worker practising infection prevention and control (IPC), including wearing correct PPE, you should pause contact tracing on your app.
You should also pause the app when:
you’re working behind a fixed Perspex (or equivalent) screen and are fully protected from other people - you should be adequately protected
you store your phone in a locker or communal area
Remember to turn contact tracing back on once you leave this situation.
