Live in the Wakefield district? You can now get a free test to check if your symptoms are signs of coronavirus.
- A high temperature
- Feel hot to touch on your chest or back

- A new continuous cough. This means coughing a lot for more than one hour or 3 or more coughs in a day. If you usually have a cough then this might be worse at this time
Even if you think the symptoms are mild, you should get a test as soon as possible.
If you have coronavirus symptoms, do not wait.
Tests are quick and easy to do and are one of the best ways to protect your family and your community.
