All UK contact-tracing apps now interoperable

05 Nov 2020

Scotland’s federated server, which allows for all Covid-19 contact-tracing apps in the UK, Crown Dependencies and Gibraltar to work with each other, has now enabled interoperability with England and Wales’ NHS COVID-19 app and Gibraltar’s Beat COVID Gibraltar app.

Interoperability was achieved between the apps in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Jersey on 28 October.

App users do not need to do anything for this software to work other than keep their app active when travelling between territories. Citizens are still being urged to do so only for essential reasons.
