NHS Test and Trace

From Wednesday 14th September, the council will begin to assist NHS Track and Trace by contacting individuals who need to self-isolate.

If you're told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace, the council or through the NHS COVID-19 app, Stay at home for 14 days

  • self-isolate for 14 days from the day you were last in contact with the person who tested positive for coronavirus – as it can take up to 14 days for symptoms to appear
  • do not leave your home for any reason – if you need food or medicine, order it online or by phone, or ask friends and family to drop it off at your home
  • do not have visitors in your home, including friends and family – except for essential care
  • try to avoid contact with anyone you live with as much as possible
  • people you live with do not need to self-isolate if you do not have symptoms
  • people in your support bubble do not need to self-isolate if you do not have symptoms

If you live with someone at higher risk from coronavirus, try to arrange for them to stay with friends or family for 14 days.

If you have to stay in the same home together, read about how to avoid spreading coronavirus to people you live with.

Test and Trace Support Payment

The test and trace support payment has been announced in response to feedback that some people were struggling to self-isolate due to financial constraints. It is to ensure that people on low incomes self-isolate when they test positive or are identified as a contact, and to encourage more people to get tested. This will help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and avoid further restrictions, including local lockdowns.
