You may get an 8-character long code from the testing service, by email or text, if you have taken a PCR test or reported your lateral flow test result online.
To input your test result to the app, select 'Enter test result' on the home screen of your app. Then, enter the 8-character code you received from the testing service.
By inputting a test result to the app, the app can give you the most relevant guidance. You can choose to anonymously share your result with others and help others to take steps to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Other app users you have been in ‘close contact’ with over the last few days will then receive an anonymous notification on their app. Read more about who gets an alert if you test positive.
