Symptom Study

Help us fight coronavirus by reporting your health daily, even if you feel well.

You can help us fight coronavirus by completing a daily health survey on the COVID-19 symptom study app. This app (please follow this link to view the app's website) is for everyone, not just for those who have symptoms.

The app will help us understand the symptoms and spread of COVID-19. By answering some quick questions, you can help us plan our response to coronavirus.

We will not share the answers you give us beyond the NHS and trusted organisations working directly with the NHS in response to coronavirus.


Test, Trace, Protect strategy

A campaign is underway aimed at informing the general public and critical workers of the Welsh Government’s Test, Trace, Protect strategy. The website has been updated with the latest information on the strategy, including guidance for employers (https://gov.wales/test-trace-protect-coronavirus). New video and animated social assets have been produced for use across paid-for campaigns and for stakeholders to share through their own channels. The assets are available to download here (by following this link) and please disseminate these to your networks and use across your social media channels to help share information on Test, Trace, Protect.
