TOMORROW (1st) will see the return of the Coronavirus mobile testing unit to Falmouth Rugby Club.
The move is to support the return of university students to the area.
The NHS has issued the following advice.
Who can get a test?
Anyone with coronavirus symptoms can get a test.
Coronavirus symptoms are:
- A high temperature- A new, continuous cough
- A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
You can get a test for someone you live with if they have these symptoms. Do not get tests for people you live with who do not have these symptoms.
When to get a test?
Book a visit to a test site to have the test today. Or order a home test kit if you cannot get to a test site.
On days 1 to 4 of your symptoms, you can get tested at a site or at home. If you're ordering a home test kit on day 4, do it by 3pm.
On day 5, you need to go to a test site. It's too late to order a home test kit.
If you are not able to get a test in the first 5 days of having symptoms, you and anyone you live with must stay at home (self-isolate). Anyone in your support bubble must also stay at home.
