Testing for Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Testing for people with symptoms

If you have symptoms and need a COVID-19 test or have a question about them, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for Coronavirus testing.

You are required by law to self-isolate if you are told to do so, or if you develop COVID-19 symptoms. 

We’ve put together the enclosed Self-Isolation FAQs to help you do so.

Testing for people without symptoms (Asymptomatic Rapid Antigen testing)

Around one in three people who have coronavirus have no symptoms and will be spreading it without realising it.

The council is broadening testing to identify those showing no symptoms in order to find positive cases more quickly, and break chains of transmission.

If you are a manager that has received a letter from the council please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for managers.

If you are a staff member and have been contacted by your manager as a priority group please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for staff.
