Test and trace

Posted on: 17 Aug 2020

   Test and trace

   Test and Trace is the national NHS programme set up to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

   It's the process for testing people who have coronavirus symptoms and tracing people they have been in close contact with, so that they can get a test and self-isolate if they test positive.

   Joined Up Care Derbyshire have more about how test and trace works. If you have coronavirus symptoms then you need to book a test and start isolating immediately, together with all other members of your household.
