Instructions on how to do this are included in the test kit. If the result is positive, you and your household must self-isolate and you must book a confirmatory PCR test. If the test is negative, continue to follow preventative measures for stopping the spread of the virus, including ‘hands, face, space, fresh air’. Bracknell Forest Council said regular testing will be an essential part of the easing of restrictions, as it will help to quickly suppress the spread of variants.

.  Charlotte Pavitt, Public Health consultant at Bracknell Forest Council, said: “Rapid testing helps us find asymptomatic COVID-19 cases that we wouldn’t otherwise know about, helping to break chains of transmission. These tests are effective in detecting people that are infectious but have no symptoms and therefore most likely to transmit infection to others. They are another tool we now have to help maintain lower infection rates. We encourage everyone to take up the offer of these free rapid tests – they are quick and easy to carry out either in a testing site or in your own home. "“It is very important that anyone who has the virus, or might have been exposed to it, avoids all social interaction for 10 days, as this will help stop the spread of coronavirus. By self-isolating when required, you are helping to protect others around you, reducing transmission and saving lives. “You must only leave your house to get a coronavirus test if you have symptoms, but you must go straight there and back - it is best to walk or drive yourself there if you can. You are legally required to self-isolate following a notification by NHS Test and Trace and could be fined if you don’t.” var article_url = encodeURIComponent(window.location.href);var content_id = encodeURIComponent('everything');var site_id = '_6npw64ok2fm7inbe3tfvavvfau';var url = "//survey.g.doubleclick.net/survey?site="+site_id+"&url="+article_url+"&cid="+content_id+"&random="+(new Date).getTime();document.write(''+'');try { console.log('Showing survey directly'); _402_Show(); } catch(e) { console.log('Try 402'); console.log(e); }
