Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are moving into Step 2 of the government's four-step roadmap out of lockdown, where more restrictions are lifted from Monday, 12 April. Read more on the latest roadmap changes. It is important to stick to the rules so we can come out of lockdown safely. Find out about the changes to council services.

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 and Oxford/AstraZeneca have both been approved for use in the UK. A third COVID-19 vaccine developed by Moderna has also been approved in the UK for rollout. The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.

People aged 42 or over can now book their vaccine appointment. Residents in the eligable criteria can walk up to a mass vaccination centre for a 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.

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 vaccines
