COVID-19 Test and Trace Service

Today the NHS has launched a new COVID-19 app as part of its Test and Trace service.

 

Alongside traditional contact tracing, the app is able to notify users if they come into contact with someone who later tests positive for coronavirus.

 

The app can be downloaded from www.covid19.nhs.uk and allows people to report symptoms, order a coronavirus test, and check in to venues by scanning a QR code.

 

We are actively encouraging people to download the app and businesses to download and display the QR code on their premises. Information on the app and how to download the QR code is available on MK Council’s #RestartMK page.

Emptying of Dog Bins in Whitehouse – COVID-19

Please note that the company dealing with cleaning Dog Bins in Whitehouse has been listed as “Essential Workers” and therefore they will continue to work, despite the current COVID-19 regulations requiring everyone to stay at home.

To ensure the safety of their workers, and minimise contact with the local community, the Dog Bins will be emptied at 5am on Thursday mornings.   Please note that the cleaning team will either be using a Ford Transit or Peugeot Boxer, so please do not be concerned or suspicious if you see these vehicles driving through Whitehouse early on Thursday mornings.

Jardines Temp Pharmacy in Barossa Way

You may have all seen the Jardines Temp Pharmacy appear in Barossa Way.   Jardines will aim to open the pharmacy as soon as possible, but due to resource limitations around COVID-19, there will be a slight delay before they are fully functional.

We will let you know as soon as we have a confirmed opening date for the pharmacy.
