Current Covid-19 Advice

Published: 27 September 2021

Keep life moving.

COVID-19 is still present in our communities. You can help stop the spread.

Going out with friends?

Don’t forget to do an LFT test before you go and make sure your result is negative.

1 in 3 people with COVID-19 don’t have any symptoms, testing helps to reduce the risk of passing the virus onto your friends.

· Face coverings and social distancing will still protect us.

· Two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will give you the best protection against the virus.

· Testing every 3-4 days with LFT tests will help to identify positive cases and break the chain of infection in our communities.

If you get a positive Lateral Flow test, you will need to isolate with your household and get a confirmatory PCR test within 72 hours. To book this visit or call 119.

Regular twice weekly testing remains key to reducing the spread of COVID19 in our communities. LFT test kits are readily available at over 100 pharmacies and a number of community collect sites. To find your nearest community collect site visit

I have a supply of Lateral Flow Test kits so please just get in touch if you need some and can’t get out to collect any.

If you don’t have a GP you can still get a vaccine, call 119 free of charge - 7am-7pm, 7 days a week or attend any of our drop-in sites

Arranging vaccination transport for 1st, 2nd, or booster doses

Transport to COVID-19 vaccination appointments has been arranged with the volunteer transport providers that cover Warwickshire, they are working to a standard operating process that includes use of PPE and appropriate cleaning schedules. Currently this transport is being provided free of charge. It can be requested if residents have no other safe way of accessing vaccination sites, including initially asking households and bubbles for support. This is to retain capacity in the system.

Booking process:

· Residents in Rugby, Warwick and Stratford areas contact: VASA 01789 262889 and press option 1, Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm or email

We’d all love to put this behind us but we’re not quite there yet so this is the advice from Warwickshire agencies currently. I put this out because I’m your Covid Champion.

Keep yourselves and others safe.

Best wishes,

Jenny Buckley
