Stay safe

COVID-19 remains a serious health risk. You should stay cautious to help protect yourself and others.

  • Let fresh air in if you meet indoors. Meeting outdoors is safer
  • Wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you come into contact with people you do not normally meet
  • Get tested and self-isolate if required
  • If you haven’t already, get vaccinated

Find out how to stay safe and help prevent the spread

Local authorities across Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire have come together to develop a local plan to manage Covid-19. Visit Stay Safe CSW for more information.

Keep up to date with the Autumn and Winter Plan for managing Covid-19.

If you are showing symptoms

If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, start isolating and book a COVID-19 test:

  • Start isolating: 10 days for you and 14 days for your household
  • Book a test: Book a test online or call 119

Free rapid testing

You can get regular rapid tests if you do not have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). About 1 in 3 people with coronavirus do not have symptoms but can still infect others. Getting tested regularly is the only way to know if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus. 

Test and Trace support payment

If you receive a positive Covid-19 test result or are told by the NHS to self-isolate because of close contact with someone who has Covid-19, you may be eligible for a £500 lump sum payment.
