HSE further state “the Covid Tracker app has been designed to make the best use of the health advice and technology available. But it’s not perfect. It should not replace the existing public health guidelines.

It’s still important to:

  • social distance – keep a space of 2 metres (6.5 feet) between you and other people
  • wash your hands properly and often
  • cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze
  • wear face coverings when you can’t social distance
  • get tested if you have symptoms or have been in close contact”
