  • Test twice a week and make it part of your everyday routine.

Many people – young and old, healthy or not – who have Covid look and feel fine but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the virus. 1 in 3 people don’t get any symptoms at all so can spread the virus without knowing it.

Remember, take a test twice a week, even if you feel well.


If you have any of the Covid symptoms – a persistent cough, a fever, or change or loss of sense of smell or taste – you need to self-isolate as soon as possible and book a PCR test online.


Self-isolating can be difficult, but there is help if you need it.


You could also get financial support if you will lose your income or if you have to stop working to look after a child who’s self-isolating.
