Local Contact Tracing in Kensington and Chelsea.

Friday 2 October 2020

We have launched a local Contact Tracing scheme in Kensington and Chelsea.  This means that NHS Test and Trace will pass on details to the Council of residents they have not been able to contact to let them know that they either have Coronavirus or they were at the same location as someone who has tested positive for the virus.

We have additional databases which means we may have more ways of contacting affected residents if the NHS can’t reach them.

We will also check with people who are self-isolating to ensure they have support and are able to get food and medicines delivered.  If not, we will provide information about local support and how to access it.

People who are told they have tested positive for Coronavirus should tell people they have been in contact as soon as possible, and these people should self-isolate for 14 days.
