COVID-19 July 2021
With the most recent increase in COVID-19 cases across Cornwall, we are here to offer support and advice on the ever-changing situation.
This page offers links to the most recent and up-to-date advice on the COVID-19 situation both locally and nationally. The Falmouth Town Team are proactively addressing the current COVID spikes in the town and are working with all relevant partners to tackle this head on.
We are urging both residents and visitors to the county and to Falmouth to please be vigilant and follow all government guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus:
- The recommendation is twice-weekly testing as part of daily routines so cases can be identified even when people have no symptoms. Rapid Lateral Flow Tests are free of charge and can be picked up from your local pharmacy or ordered online: https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/lateral-flow-tests
- If anyone does develop symptoms, which include a new continuous cough, high temperature or loss or change to their sense of taste or smell, they should self-isolate straight away and book a test online at gov.uk/coronavirus, or call 119 if they do not have access to the internet.
- If you’re eligible, book your vaccine, and make sure you have both doses to give you the best protection. Having both doses reduces the chance of symptomatic Covid-19 by 76-84%
We will have more support and information available soon. Please see below for relevant links.
