Test, Trace, Protect to keep Wales safe: information and guidance

TEE Covid Information

Test, Trace, Protect is Welsh Government’s approach to testing and contact tracing. It is delivered through NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect service which includes a number of public sector partners working together to help contain the spread of the virus and reduce the number of people being exposed to the virus.

There are seven main principles to this which are summarised in this handy guide on what people need to do if they develop a symptom

If you have tested positive and have been within 1m of someone for 1 minute or longer or within 2m of someone for 15 minutes or longer, you’ll need to tell a contact tracer (working on behalf of the NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect service) about them. You’ll also need to tell them about anyone you’ve travelled in a vehicle with, or people who’ve sat near you on public transport.
