All residents in the borough can now apply for rapid Covid-19 test; this test is only for people who are not experiencing symptoms.
It’s shown that 1 in 3 people who have coronavirus never show any symptoms, however this does not mean they aren’t infectious. Lateral flow devices are one of the tools used to help detect and fight Covid-19.
in the last few weeks, residents with the highest rates of new cases of COVID-19 were able to have a test. The Council is now expanding this offer – particularly to essential workers, including those who work in supermarkets, taxi or mini cab drivers, transport staff, those who work in key public services or in faith-based organisations. Also, residents who are volunteering or providing care for a vulnerable person can also apply.
