In combination with following the current lockdown rules and remembering ‘Hands. Face. Space’ advice, it will help to monitor and suppress the spread of the virus. Positive cases will be sequenced for genomic data to help understand COVID-19 variants and their spread within these areas.People living within these targeted areas are strongly encouraged to take a COVID-19 test this week, whether they are showing symptoms or not.People with symptoms should book a test in the usual way, and those without symptoms should visit their local authority website for more information.Surge testing in parts of Haringey, Merton and Sefton is now complete.
