Image of test trace protect infographic

Testing and contact tracing can help to break the chain of transmission of coronavirus but it needs everyone's support. This step-by-step infographic guide explains what you should do if you have symptoms, including self-isolating, getting tested and assisting the contact tracing service to identify people you have been in contact with by using Digital Self-Trace, the online contact tracing service.  This guide includes new advice for close contacts of positive cases, who will now be advised to book a test. 

The leaflet has been translated into 17 languages available to download below. Other languages may be available upon request by contacting us. Please note that the translations are currently of the May 2021 version of the leaflet and that advice on self-isolation has changed for some close contacts - see here for more information.

If you need information in a language that is not yet available here, you can use the Browsealoud facility on this website. This option can translate and/or read aloud over 90 other languages. The full list of languages available is here and instructions for how to use the Browsealoud option are available to download here.
