Covid-19 Information

IMPORTANT

If anyone in your household develops COVID-19 symptoms (a high temperature, a new continous cough or a loss or change to sense of smell or taste), they should self isolate straight away and book a PCR test by clicking on the following link:

The self isolation rules have changed and you do not need to self isolate if someone you live with has symptoms of COVID-19, or has tested positive for COVID-19 if any of the following apply:

• you're fully vaccinated - this means 14 days have passed since your final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine given by the NHS.

• you're under 18 years, 6 months old

• you're taking part or have taken part in a COVID-19 vaccine trial

• you're not able to get vaccinated for medical reasons
