South Gloucestershire Council - 19th October 2021

Please see below for an update from South Gloucestershire Council, which was sent to all members.

Firstly, we would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of Sir David Amess MP who was tragically killed last week. His family have urged people to set aside hatred and work towards togetherness and we strongly echo those sentiments.

With the recent news about issues at one Covid-19 PCR testing laboratory, we would like to reassure you that there is no evidence of faults with any of the test kits themselves, and you should remain confident in continuing to use them. It is important to test regularly and, if you get a positive lateral flow test, you should isolate immediately and get a follow up PCR test, just as you should if you have symptoms. With winter on the way, there is expected to be a rise in colds and flu too. Watch this video from our Director of Public Health Sara Blackmore on how to keep yourself and others safe.
