Oldham Council is urging residents to book a free coronavirus test with a series of sites now available across the borough.
With good availability of testing across the borough, you can book a test at www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or by dialling 119 – which will put you through to the dedicated NHS coronavirus testing service.
You can book a test for yourself and up to three additional members of your household.
Testing takes only a few minutes and staff are on hand to guide you through the process and support you. It’s quick and painless and available for adults and children.
You can also order a home testing kit on the website or phoneline and easily carry out the test in the comfort of your own home.
If you have any symptoms of coronavirus, it’s really important you get tested as soon as possible. Not only will it keep you safe, it also means your close contacts can be traced and the outbreak controlled.
But because many people can be asymptomatic – show no or very little signs of having coronavirus – Oldham Council is also urging those without symptoms to get tested.
