Got symptoms? Contact NHS Test and Trace.
As we move closer to some sort of normality and our high streets welcome us back again, it is important we continue with the Covid-19 advice that is still in place. By social distancing, practising good hygiene and following the guidance on face coverings, we can all play our part in curbing the further spread of this virus, which at present, appears to spread very easily.
Bromley Public Health has published a Local Covid-19 Outbreak Control Plan on our website which sets out how the Council will work with government, Public Health England and partners such as NHS, Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group, businesses and community leaders to help mitigate the risks of an outbreak of Covid-19 in the Borough. Together, we can all help to protect each other and save lives.
NHS Test and Trace
If you develop symptoms – high temperature, dry cough, loss of taste or smell - stay at home and call NHS Test and Trace. You can get a test either locally or sent to your home and know within a day if you have Covid-19. If you do, it is important you ‘self-isolate’ for 14 days.
Let NHS Test and Trace know with whom you have been in recent, close contact so they can be contacted. NHS Test and Trace will advise how they protect themselves and their contacts from catching the virus. 'Close Contact' means if you have been within two metres of someone for more than 15 minutes or have been in face-to-face contact with someone less than one metre away.
or call 119 if no internet access
NHS Test and Trace will never ask for your bank details or payments; details of other accounts; passwords or PIN numbers; and will not ask you to call a premium rate number such as those starting with 09 or 087.
