Enhanced testing for COVID-19 variants of concern
We have been working with Public Health England to carry out enhanced COVID-19 testing in areas of the borough where COVID-19 variants of concern have been found.
Enhanced testing in targeted areas within the UB3, UB4, UB7, UB8 and UB10 postcodes has now been completed.
Thank you to all residents and businesses who have played their part.
Please continue to follow national guidance, including frequently washing your hands and covering your face in enclosed public spaces. If you test positive by any method, you must isolate to stop the spread of the virus.
Have you had your COVID-19 vaccination?
In addition, the NHS is encouraging residents to come forward for their vaccination as soon as they are eligible. The vaccine is safe and effective and remains the best way to protect against the virus.
Support for residents who are self-isolating
Hillingdon Council's COVID-19 Community Hub offers a range of support for residents who are self-isolating, including financial advice and support, emotional wellbeing and befriending services, priority online shopping slots and food bank referrals for those who meet eligibility criteria.
