Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As we try to keep ourselves safe, and as guidance changes, it's important to know what you can and cannot do.

Around 1 in 3 people who have coronavirus do not have any symptoms and could be passing on the virus without knowing it. Rapid testing at home is important to keep us safe. It helps us to quickly find people who have the virus but do not have symptoms, so they can isolate and avoid spreading the virus. We recommend that you take a rapid test on days when you're more likely to catch or spread coronavirus, for example when you're planning to mix with people in crowded indoor places.

If you do have coronavirus symptoms, it's important to book a test straight away. If you have coronavirus, symptoms of coronavirus, or Test and Trace say you've been in contact with someone who has coronavirus, you must self-isolate. It's the law, and it also helps keep people safe. The rules on self-isolation have changed. You can find out more about the current self-isolation rules on GOV.UK.

The NHS COVID-19 app is a vital part of Test and Trace. Please make sure you download it to your smartphone (the app needs Bluetooth turned on to work). You can also ‘check in’ at venues you visit.

Data dashboard

Below is the latest coronavirus data for Middlesbrough. It shows the number of people who have had a positive coronavirus test. The data is for both Pillar 1 testing (in PHE or NHS hospitals for those in clinical need, and those working in medical or care settings) and Pillar 2 testing (swab testing for the wider population). The data for coronavirus-related deaths is reported by the ONS, and provided one week behind.

The figures are updated every day at 3pm, using data from Public Health England (PHE) and the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
