Coronavirus - COVID-19

COVID-19 Government restrictions

The government announced that from 00.01am on Wednesday 2 December Cheshire East will be placed in Tier 2 'hight alert status'. 

Test, trace and isolate

You should get a test only if you have symptoms of COVID-19.

If you have been contacted to say you have been close to someone who has tested positive you must self isolate for 14 days. You should only get a test if you get symptoms.

A negative test result does not mean that you can stop isolating before the 14 days have passed, as you may still develop the virus within that time. You must self-isolate for the full 14 days.

Find out more from GOV.UK about how test and trace works and when you should self isolate.
