Stay safe Isle of Wight

As you enjoy everything the Island has to offer this summer, please continue to be careful. This will help stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect the NHS.

There are some things we can all do to help stop the virus spreading:

How to stay safe 

Test, record, repeat


Test, record, repeat!

Please keep taking the rapid response LFT tests twice a week. Taking a regular test protects you and those you love. You can pick up test kits at pharmacies.

Record the result whether it’s positive or negative. If you get a positive result, isolate and book a PCR test.
