A lot of these positive test results are for younger people (under 30's). These are people that live in our community and will be going to the same places that you do.
It is so important that we continue to stay safe by wearing masks, sanitising hands and keeping 2m apart.
If you are offered the covid vaccine we strongly encourage you to have both doses.
We really want to stay open and seeing our patients so please DO NOT come to the practice if you or a member of your household develop covid symptoms. Instead, you should stay at home, self isolate and order a PCR covid test. We can still arrange a telephone or video appointment and if it is appropriate we can arrange a home visit.
Please remember that Lateral Flow Tests (LFTs) are only to be used if you do not have symptoms. They do not mean you don't have Covid, but they can show that you do have Covid without having any symptoms. Do not rely on LFTs to tell you if you are Covid positive, they only help to filter out positives with no symptoms. If you have any symptoms you MUST stay at home, self isolate and order a PCR test .
Help us to stay open so we can carry on helping you. Remember the rainbow :-).
