Some useful advice for residents on COVID-19 in the latest Wiltshire Council newsletter…

The self-isolation advice for people with coronavirus (COVID-19) recently changed; it is now possible to end self-isolation after seven days, following two negative LFD tests taken 24 hours apart. The first LFD test should not be taken before the sixth day. If ending self-isolation after day seven as described here, then please limit contact with others wherever possible until after the formal 10-day isolation period would have finished. This guidance also applies to children and young people who usually attend an education or childcare setting. 

Lateral Flow Tests at council-run collection sites
Due to the current national increased demand for lateral flow test kits, there is very little stock at Wiltshire Council-run collection sites at Devizes Leisure Centre, Bourne Hill in Salisbury, Monkton Park in Chippenham, Springfield Community Campus in Corsham, Calne Leisure Centre, The Vale Community Campus in Pewsey, and the Nadder Centre in Tisbury, and due to demand it cannot be guaranteed how long the sites will maintain stock. More stock is due – Wiltshire Council will keep their Coronavirus webpage updated with any developments. You can use this LFD postcode checker to find other supplies of lateral flow tests, or order kits on the national website GOV.UK: Order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests, this is updated periodically with more kits usually becoming available throughout the day.
