You CANNOT be identified by using this service. No name or email is required.

Scroll to town level or further on the map and click or tap the map location where you want to report your status.

Please feel free to be as accurate with your location as possible - or as accurate as you feel comfortable with.

Do not report on anyone else's status or location without their permission.

Latitude and Longitude will be worked out for you from where you clicked on the map, however you can change them if required.

  • Not ill:
    You are not ill at this time

    You believe you may have Coronavirus
  • Coronavirus - confirmed- symptomatic:
    You have been tested and it's been confirmed you have Coronavirus and you have symptoms
  • Coronavirus - confirmed- asymptomatic:
    You have been tested and it's been confirmed you have Coronavirus but you don't have any symptoms
  • Coronavirus - recovered:
    You have had and recovered from Coronavirus
  • Coronavirus - deceased:
    You are reporting a death of a friend or family member that has been confirmed to have been caused by Coronavirus

IMPORTANT - Your unique code and PIN

To ensure anonymity, rather than use an email address and password, we use a unique code and PIN number for validation allowing users to edit their status.

Your unique code and PIN are automatically generated for you and are used to anonymously identify you as a unique user so you can edit your status at a future date.

They are both stored as Cookies on your browser, however we advise you to keep a note of them in case your Cookies are reset or you wish to delete your Cookies.

You CANNOT be personally identified in any way by the unique code and PIN. Please see the Privacy section below for more information.

If you do not want to use the code and PIN provided, you can create your own by changing the respective fields (for the Unique Code you can click the regenerate button). We will automatically check if the code is unique and suitable.

If you are reporting multiple people, you will need to use a unique code and PIN for each person.

Press the Report button and a colour-coded marker will be placed on the map for each unique and validated Report you make.

Your entry will appear noticeably larger to you only - so you can easily click and edit/update.

To edit/update your status, click on your own marker, or create a new one by clicking on the map.

You can scroll all over the map and click on individual marker points to see individual status'.
