Why are we asking everyone to take a PCR test?  

A PCR test is a swab test that goes to a laboratory for testing.  A PCR test is the only way to accurately identify coronavirus and new variants.  

Take a PCR test:  

·         Even if you are vaccinated as you could potentially still spread to people without knowing, especially those who have yet to be vaccinated or fully vaccinated  

·         Even if you recently did a rapid test  

·         Even if you have no symptoms  

·         If you have COVID 19 symptoms  

Anyone who has symptoms of Coronavirus should stay at home and book a free test online https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test  or by phone (call 119) so they can be tested at a testing site or have a testing kit sent to their home.
