The Unique extended family supporting our keyworkers

It’s no surprise that these times have been hard on everyone, but what has really pulled us through is the amazing community spirit shown by our Unique family and its extended members. We hope you enjoy these posts as much as we did!

Medical Detection Dogs

In some extra special news, Medical Detection Dogs (follow their Facebook page here) released information about ***CV-19 SUPER SIX***

These are the six noses that could soon be trained to detect if someone has COVID-19 and play a vital role in preventing further spread of the pandemic in future.

Norman, Digby, Storm, Star, Jasper and Asher are ready to be assessed to work on a project to train dogs to detect the virus and we couldn’t be more proud of them.

We’ll be giving you a little fact file about each of them over the weekend.

New information about testing for our key workers

For any of our key workers, please see below.

As of Friday 24th April, keyworkers and their families can order tests online, if showing symptoms of the virus.

Essential workers who want a test will be able to book an appointment directly at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Key workers will be able to select either a regional test site drive-through appointment or a home test kit.

Home test kits will initially be limited but more will become available. There is good availability of regional test sites, so the Government is asking people to select this option if you can.

After home tests booked out in minutes, ministers plan to roll out large numbers of home testing kits in future weeks.
