Coronavirus is a serious risk. Please stick to the rules. Keep a safe distance from people you don't live with. Wash your hands. Wear a face-covering when required.
You can now go for a free Coronavirus test if you have a wider range of symptoms. As well as the three classic signs: fever, a new continuous cough or a loss/change of taste and smell; people are now able to get a test if they have other symptoms too.
If you take a test because of these other wider symptoms you are not required to isolate while waiting for your result. This includes children and school pupils who can continue to attend schools and childcare settings while they await a test result. However, children and adults with diarrhoea and or vomiting should remain off work or school and not attend childcare settings until they are symptom free for 48 hours even if their Covid-19 test is negative.
If you get a positive Covid-19 result, you and your household must then isolate. Households must also isolate if anyone develops any of the 3 classic Covid-19 symptoms while waiting for a test result taken on wider symptoms to come back.
But if you are experiencing one or more of the three most common COVID-19 symptoms (new persistent cough, fever and/or loss of taste or smell) you must self-isolate with your household whilst you await a test result.
To book a test ring 119 or book online: https://gov.wales/getting-tested-coronavirus-covid-19. You can also ring our local number: 01639 862757 and speak to an operator who will book your test.
From Saturday, 7th August, 2021, fully vaccinated adults, under 18s and vaccine trial participants will not need to self-isolate if they are a close contact of someone with coronavirus.
