If you don’t have any Covid-19 symptoms, you can check you’re safe by getting a test at a local centre. Around 1 in 3 people with Covid-19 do not show any symptoms.
The tests are fast and free, and they offer peace of mind for those who work outside of their home.
If you test negative, you know you’re safe to work. If you test positive, you can apply for a self-isolation payment on our website to get support while you stay at home. Book your test on the Essex.Gov.UK website.
