Most of you are aware through local news there are concerns of the new variant being more transmissible, therefore The Parish Council have been requested to share the following information with our local communities to help slow the spread of the virus and make sure our NHS remains protected.
:::Make twice-weekly testing part of your routine so cases can be identified even when people have no symptoms. Rapid Lateral Flow Tests are free of charge and can be picked up from your local pharmacy or ordered online:
:::If anyone does develop symptoms, which include a new continuous cough, high temperature or loss or change to their sense of taste or smell, they should self-isolate straight away and book a test online at , or call 119 if they do not have access to the internet.
:::If you’re eligible book your vaccine, and make sure you have both doses to give you the best protection. Having both doses reduces the chance of symptomatic Covid-19 by 76-84%.
