Update 8 June 2021 - Lancashire to receive enhanced support to tackle Delta variant.

A package of enhanced support – including surge testing and increased vaccinations – is coming to Lancashire as cases of Covid-19 continue to rise.

Everyone in Lancashire, including children, is now being strongly encouraged to take a Covid-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, whether they are showing symptoms or not. You can book this through the NHS website and tick ‘I’ve been told to get a test by my local council, health protection team or healthcare professional’ if you don’t have any symptoms.

You can read more on Lancashire County Council's website and the Government's website. 

To help stop the spread, you should take particular caution when meeting anyone outside your household or support bubble.

The Government is advising people in Lancashire, wherever possible, to try to:

  • meet outside rather than inside where possible
  • keep 2 metres apart from people that you don’t live with (unless you have formed a support bubble with them), this includes friends and family you don’t live with
  • minimise travel in and out of affected areas

You should also:

  • Get tested twice a week for free and isolate if you are positive
  • Continue to work from home if you can
  • Get vaccinated when you are offered it, and encourage others to do so as well

Stop the spread

  • Wash or sanitise your hands regularly
  • Keep your distance from others
  • Wear a face covering where applicable
  • Stay home and get tested if you have any symptoms
  • Stick to the rules – the sooner the infection rates come down, the sooner we can get back to doing the things we love.
