NHS staff deleting Covid app as calls grow for doctors to be exempt from self-isolation

Healthcare workers are advised to ‘pause’ contact tracing on the app while working in clinical settings, with personal protective equipment worn when required. But NHS managers said some staff were privately leaving the app off at all times or deleting it because they feared being forced to self-isolate. One said: ‘I had Covid in the first wave, I’ve been double jabbed – I can’t keep isolating every time the app pings. I switched it off ages ago, and I think a lot of staff who are double vaccinated have done the same’ – Telegraph
