Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading



If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), call 119 to book a test or go online. If you or anyone in your household tests positive, make sure you follow the self isolation guidelines.

If you have a medical condition which makes you extremely vulnerable to coronavirus (COVID-19), register and tell the government whether or not you need support.
