Do you run a community group in the East Riding?
We are asking for your support in keeping our communities safe this autumn, particularly now many of us are returning to local leisure and social activities, back at school or returning to the workplace.
We need trusted community voices and groups within the East Riding to further promote the use of rapid Lateral Flow Tests (LFTs) to all of our residents, young and old, especially those that may not access tests easily otherwise.
Be a local hero...
If you would be willing to become a distributor or collection point for LFT kits for home use in your area, please get in touch with our team: firstname.lastname@example.org
Did you know?
Around 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have symptoms so it is important that everyone (aged 11 and over), tests regularly using a LFT as it might be the only way to know they have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate it will help prevent the virus from spreading.
It is also recommended that LFTs are taken before attending any events to help protect those around you. LFTs are to be used only where there are no symptoms present and as a precaution. More information can be found here: https://covid19.eastriding.gov.uk/testing/#LFT
Thank you for your support.
