Test and Trace

22 Jun 2020

The NHS Test and Trace programme helps prevent the spread of Covid-19 and contain and stop further outbreaks. It is a tried and tested method for Public Health to control the spread of many infectious diseases.

It works by identifying contacts of people who have tested positive and by encouraging them to self-isolate and closely monitor their health, rather than continuing to mix with others and passing the virus on.

If you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace you must self-isolate for 14 days and tell your manager. You should take a test if you develop symptoms by calling 119 or visiting the self-referral website.(External link)

Members of your household do not need to self-isolate unless you think you have symptoms,

For more information on what to do if you have Covid-19 symptoms, have a positive text or are contacted by NHS Test and Trace please go to the Covid-19 symptoms and testing – what you need to know section.
