Covid-19 Important update from T&W Council:

Many residents who have tested positive for coronavirus have also displayed other symptoms than the main ones.

As the number of cases in our borough remains high and above the national average - we need to identify cases as early as possible, so we can slow down the spread of the virus.

We are now asking you to book a COVID-19 test as a precaution, if you are showing other symptoms, such as:

  • Headaches
  • Aches and pains
  • Feeling tired for no good reason
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Tummy ache in children

You can book a test online, it's quick and easy.

When you get the following question in the online form "Why are you asking for a test?"  - you need to select the following answer:
My local council or health protection team has asked me (or someone I live with) to get a test, even though I do not have symptoms


If you are booking a coronavirus test as a precaution due to one or more of the above symptoms, you don't need to self-isolate unless you receive a positive test result.

Do you have any of the main coronavirus symptoms?

If you have any of the following symptoms:

  • High temperature
  • A new, persistent cough
  • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

You must isolate immediately and book a test and remain in isolation until you receive your test result.
