Pause contact tracing by selecting 'Manage contact tracing' on the home screen, then toggle on or off.
You should pause contact tracing when you:
are working behind a fixed screen and are fully protected from other people
store your phone in a locker or communal area, for example while working or taking part in a leisure activity like swimming
are a worker in health and social care and are wearing medical grade PPE such as a surgical mask
are a healthcare worker working in a healthcare building such as a hospital or GP surgery (read more about using the app as a healthcare worker)
You can set a reminder to turn contact tracing back on after 4 hours, 8 hours or 12 hours. Read more about what this reminder notification looks like.
