Residents and workers across the Square Mile and Hackney are being encouraged to get a test if they have symptoms of coronavirus.
Leaflets are being sent out to all homes across the City and Hackney explaining the important role that the NHS Test and Trace programme plays in reducing the spread of coronavirus.
The ‘Keep London Safe’ leaflets also highlight the importance of prevention measures, such as washing your hands, wearing a face covering, and social distancing.
As part of the campaign, posters and banners will be placed around the Square Mile and Hackney letting people know how they can book a coronavirus test.
Recent data showed that 46% of Londoners don’t know how to get a coronavirus test, and this figure increases among some groups, such as older people, meaning it is more important than ever to inform people on how to get a test to help keep London safe.
People with symptoms need to get a test to know whether they have coronavirus so that they can take action to not pass it on to others, and should self-isolate as soon as they start to develop symptoms.
If you have coronavirus symptoms such as a cough, fever or loss of taste or smell, please isolate yourself from other people for 7 days and get a test by calling 119 or going to nhs.uk/coronavirus. If you are asked to self isolate, regardless of symptoms, you must do so to keep from possibly passing it onto others.
