The original version of this article contained errors.

In the Introduction:

The GitHub online link was incorrectly quoted and should appear as: “/naominickerson/fault_tolerance_simulations/releases”

In the Results:

Page 2, column 1, line 23, the whole sentence should read:

‘It is important that dD, in order that any interactions between the in-plane spins are relatively weak’.

Page 2, column 2, line 30, the whole sentence should read:

‘Therefore, the Hamiltonian of interest describes two S=1/2 spins, each in a static B field in the Z direction and experiencing a dipole–dipole interaction…’

Page 2 column 2, line 42, should read:

‘… where the expressions discard irrelevant global phases, 𝟙 is the…’

Page 4 column 1, line 6, should read:

‘…simple phase shifts induced by the ‘deactivated’ probe can either be…’

Page 5, figure 4, note a should read:

‘Private communication with the author of [28]’

The errors have been corrected in the PDF and HTML versions of the article.
