Don’t let your guard down

With the number of Covid cases rising once more in Cornwall, we are urging people to keep following the guidance:

     🙌  Wash your hands regularly
     😷  Wear a face covering when required
      ↔  Keep your distance from other people
      🌲  Meet people outside in the fresh air or keeping rooms well ventilated
      🧪 Keep home testing

💉 And if you're a mid-90s baby, it's now your turn to get the jab. If you or a loved one will be 25 or older on or before 1 July and haven’t yet been vaccinated, you can now book your Covid-19 jab. 💉
Book your jab

Free Covid testing for everyone

Anyone in Cornwall can now get free twice-weekly Covid-19 tests.

Here are three reasons why it’s important

  1. Not everyone has been offered the vaccine yet
  2. One in three people have no symptoms
  3. Society can open up more safely so we can continue on the roadmap.

The tests are free and easy to collect from your local pharmacy or drive-through collection site. You can also order them online for delivery to your home.
