LOCAL CONTACT TRACING SERVICE LAUNCHED
A Wakefield and Kirklees Local Contact Tracing Service (LCTS) has been launched to reach residents who may either have tested COVID-19 positive or have been in close contact with someone who has.
If the NHS Test & Trace team has been unable to reach a resident in within 24 hours of them being alerted by the app, their details will be passed to the local service.
The LCTS will text first to say they will call. The text and calls will come from a 01924 number.
Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 (a persistent cough, high temperature, loss of taste or smell) they should isolate immediately and book a test online at www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test.
Wakefield residents who need help in getting a test should call 01924 22 44 97. All NHS COVID-19 tests are free.
