Herefordshire Council Notice

COVID-19 RAPID TESTING EXTENDED IN HEREFORDSHIRE

Workers across Herefordshire expecting to return to their jobs from Monday, April 12 are being invited to start doing twice-weekly rapid COVID-19 tests (known as Lateral Flow Tests) immediately.

The Government’s plan is that from April 12 non-essential retail; personal care premises, such as hairdressers and nail salons; and public buildings, including libraries and community centres can reopen.

Herefordshire Council-run testing sites and community pharmacies across the County are extending their offer of COVID-19 rapid testing – currently for symptom-free essential workers, who cannot work from home - to those likely to resume work as part of Step 2 of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown.

April 12 may also mark the return to other key activities - indoor leisure facilities, such as gyms will also reopen in a restricted way, as will most outdoor attractions, such as zoos, theme parks, drive-in cinemas and outdoor hospitality venues like pub gardens and cafes. Self-contained accommodation such as campsites and holiday lets, where indoor facilities are not shared with other households, can also reopen.

Also from April 12, anyone aged 16 years or over venturing out for these purposes in Herefordshire is encouraged to access symptom-free testing at a local test site.

Around one in three people who are infected with COVID-19 have no symptoms, so could be spreading the disease without knowing it. Broadening testing to identify those showing no symptoms will mean finding positive cases more quickly and help break the chain of transmission.

The Government’s Community Asymptomatic Testing Programme, being run locally by Herefordshire Council, aims to improve the detection of positive cases so people can isolate and prevent spreading the disease and reduce the prevalence of the virus. It is being used in addition to the established testing venues, which are for anyone with symptoms of Covid-19 in Herefordshire.

Herefordshire residents can book an appointment at a community symptom-free test site by visiting the Council’s website. The rapid tests produce a result in up to 2 hours and people are notified by text message or email. Anyone who does not receive their result within 12 hours, should take another rapid test.
