Keep getting tested for coronavirus
The Leader of Medway Council and Medway’s Director of Public Health are encouraging everyone who lives or works in Medway to book symptom-free coronavirus tests twice a week.
With more people anticipated to be out in the community over the coming months as part of the government’s roadmap to recovery plans, it remains just as important that people continue to regularly take a symptom-free coronavirus test to protect themselves, their families and people around them. One in three people with coronavirus have no symptoms, meaning that someone could be highly infectious without being aware of it.
Home testing kits can be ordered online, or they can be picked up from collection centres across Medway, including selected pharmacies. Residents must record all home test results online, on the government’s website. Residents can also get tested at pop-up testing sites. For more information, see medway.gov.uk/coronavirus
THE RAINBOW EFFECT
Medway Council have commissioned ten local creatives to create a range of pioneering contemporary artwork to support essential coronavirus (COVID-19) messages. The artwork will also thank all of Medway’s key workers who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to help keep residents safe.
From large murals on the side of public buildings, important safety messages with superheroes, to music in public toilets, the council has commissioned innovative projects to help keep residents safe.
The artworks are a reminder of how the creative sector can help raise awareness of vital public health messages in different ways for a variety of audiences.
The commissions also support Medway’s bid for UK City of Culture 2025, as well as the area’s newly adopted cultural strategy.
