This week Bristol City Council launch their #GetTested4Bristol campaign, to encourage 18-30 year olds to make lateral flow (rapid) testing a part of their regular routine. Up to one in three people with COVID-19 do not display symptoms, and rapid tests help to work out those who are positive but do not have symptoms.
Rapid testing is:
Open to everyone
Helps to protect Bristol
With the help of some local Bristol influencers from across the night-time and music sectors, sports, youth clubs, the local authority and Bristol’s popular drag scene, the Council are sharing messages of inspiration and support with young people to encourage them to take up regular rapid testing.
Videos from these influencers will be shared across the Council’s Instagram channel from Tuesday 8 June. They’ll be spotlighting one influencer’s message per day on their Instagram reels and stories.
Please help our young people #GetTested4Bristol so we can keep our city safe.
Support is available to anyone who tests positive for coronavirus through the We Are Bristol helpline on 0800 694 0184. This includes practical support such as collecting prescriptions or food shopping, emotional and mental health advice, and information about the NHS Test and Trace Payment Scheme.
