The city council is here if you need help due to the impacts of COVID-19.

Living with Covid

This week the Government announced the next steps for ‘Living with Covid’ and outlined the future approach to testing in England from April, once the universal testing offer ends. Free symptomatic testing will continue for certain groups, these are:

  • Patients in hospital, for whom a test is required for clinical management or to support treatment pathways.
  •  Individuals whose immune system means they are at higher risk of serious illness from Covid-19, who are eligible for antiviral medication or other treatments.
  • Individuals who live or work in high-risk settings, for example staff and residents of adult social care, hospitals and hospices, NHS services, and prisons and places of detention, and staff in high-risk domestic abuse refuges and homelessness settings, as they work or live-in settings where infection needs to be identified quickly to minimize outbreaks.
