Let’s work together to protect our Tameside community


Avoid a local lockdownToolkit 
 

Everyone Must Act Now to Avoid Further Covid Restrictions

It’s important, now more than ever, that we continue with our efforts to protect each other.

Tameside Council is working closely with Greater Manchester Police to raise awareness of the actions everyone should take as well as supporting businesses to ensure appropriate safety measures are in place.

It’s simple and it works, here’s what you can do to help:

 


Do not socialise with anyone you don’t live with, or that isn’t in your support bubble anywhere indoors or in your garden. If you are outdoors in public, do not gather in groups of more than six – It works!
Keep your social distance – It works!
Wash your hands regularly – It works!
Self isolate if you have symptoms or are identified as a close contact – It works!
Wear a face covering – It works!
We’re in this together and can overcome this together
 

Got symptoms? Get tested

To control Coronavirus, testing and tracing must become a new way of life. If you have any of the following symptoms, no matter how mild, you need to self-isolate and get a test immediately so that it’s within 5 days of being symptomatic;
 
  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss of or a change in your normal sense of smell or taste
 
To book a test or order a home testing kit visit:
www.nhs.uk/coronavirus  or call 119

 
There are a number of testing sites in Greater Manchester for you to book an appointment at, but we are making more and more local testing sites available here in Tameside for easier access. It’s simple, safe, confidential and will protect everyone.


 
PLEASE ONLY GET A TEST IF YOU HAVE CORONAVIRUS SYMPTOMS  

This will help make sure people who need a test can get one. We all need to play our part to protect the NHS Test and Trace service for those who really need it.
 
If you test positive, NHS Test and Tracing will contact you to trace people you have been in close contact with.

If you’re told you have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, please self-isolate for 14 days even if you aren’t showing any symptoms.
 
Please play your part so we can safely return to a more normal way of life.


If you are self-isolating and have no family, friends or neighbours to support you please call 0161 342 8355
