Test, Trace, Protect

A new Test, Trace, Protect scheme has been launched by the Welsh Government to help control the spread of COVID-19. 

Test, Trace, Protect will involve:

  1. Testing people who have symptoms, while they self-isolate and request a test
  2. Tracing people who they have been in contact with who has tested positive, asking them to then self-isolate
  3. Protecting the community, especially the most vulnerable

If symptoms are not found to be due to COVID-19, then the person tested and their contacts will no longer have to self-isolate.

In North Wales, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, Public Health Wales and the six Local Authorities are working together with Welsh Government to provide the Test, Trace, Protect scheme.
