The Flintshire Test Trace Protect team are reminding people living in Flintshire to be alert for coronavirus symptoms.  The advice comes after a growing number of coronavirus cases across the County. 

Whilst Flint has been highlighted in recent days, there are rising numbers across the whole of Flintshire and anyone displaying the main COVID-19 symptoms:

• a fever;

• a new continuous cough;

• a loss/change of taste and smell;

should self-isolate immediately for 10 days (together with the rest of their household) and book a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test by visiting the Welsh Government website: https://gov.wales/getting-tested-coronavirus-covid-19 or by phoning 119.
