Covid update

Covid-19 infections are rising fast in Tower Hamlets, especially in young people.   

Often, people with Covid-19 show no symptoms. If you have Covid-19 and don’t know it, you can spread it, putting your friends and family at risk.  

Testing tells you know if you have Covid-19 so that you can protect your friends and family this Christmas. 

If you are a student in Years 7 – 13 or you live with someone who is, you should get tested for free before Christmas, with or without symptoms. Similarly, if you work in a secondary school or college, you should get tested as soon as possible. Visit www.towerhamlets.gov.uk/MTU for more information.   

After Christmas, you can take another free test if you work in a secondary school or college, or if you are a student in Years 11-13. This is to help protect school communities from Covid-19 in the New Year. You can find more information about this here
