AVAILABILITY OF MOBILE TESTING UNITS
There are three testing sites in North Somerset: the regional centre at Bristol Airport and mobile testing units at Castlewood, Clevedon and Locking Road car park in Weston.
The advice remains that people with symptoms should self-isolate at home while trying to access a test.
LONG COVID ADVICE AND RECOVERY
You’ll have heard the term ‘long Covid’ referred to in news reports to describe the ongoing impact that the virus is having for some people. Long Covid is a condition that can affect patients in many different ways and our understanding of how to manage it is still evolving. Support is now available for people to help them come to terms with the impact the virus has had on both body and mind. A new NHS website includes a range of advice and tools to aid recovery.
