Test and trace
If you get a positive test, NHS Test and Trace will contact you. They will ask you to share information about yourself.

These will include symptoms, employment and activities. They need the contacts you have had with other people, just before or after you developed symptoms.

This is vital if we are to stop the spread of the virus.

If NHS Test and Trace calls you by phone, they will be calling using either a local Lincoln 01522 number, or the national phone number 0300 0135 000.

Please help us stop the spread.
