Test and Trace
The aim of the national Test and Trace service is to control the spread of coronavirus, by ensuring anyone who develops symptoms can be tested and identifying recent close contacts of anyone who tests positive.
We have also developed a local testing service for people who are not displaying symptoms of coronavirus (symptom-free) to help reduce transmission in the community.
Everyone should be getting symptom-free tests regularly, at least twice a week, either at a symptom-free testing site, a workplace testing site, or through a home testing service.
