Governments changes to the restrictions can be found on their website.

Testing for Coronavirus

Testing for coronavirus is key to reducing the spread of the virus.

If you have symptoms (a high temperature; a new continuous cough; a loss of smell or taste) you should self-isolate immediately with your family and get a COVID-19 test.

One in three people with COVID-19 do not display any symptoms and this can mean that the virus is spread to other people, including people you live with.

Residents who have a valid reason for leaving home under the lockdown rules can now get a free coronavirus test in Ealing, even if they do not have COVID-19 symptoms.

Find out more about how and where to get a test.

Coronavirus vaccines

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines developed by Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford-AstraZeneca and Moderna have been approved for use in the UK. If you are offered a vaccine, please make sure you get it - vaccines offer the only protection from COVID-19 and the best way out of the pandemic. Find out more about the COVID-19 vaccines.

People aged 18 or over or those who will turn 18 before 1 July can now book their vaccine appointment. Residents in the eligible criteria can walk-up to a North West London mass vaccination centre for a first dose of the vaccine on a first come first served basis. An appointment is the only way to guarentee a jab. Check the NHS website to see if you are eligible to book an appointment without waiting to be contacted.
