New government advice has been updated for people in Lancashire and South Cumbria who are shielding from coronavirus (COVID-19).
The government has launched the NHS Test and Trace service as part of the coronavirus recovery strategy. This will mean anyone with symptoms will be tested and their close contacts will be traced. New guidance means those who have been in close contact with someone who tests positive must isolate for 14 days, even if they have no symptoms, to avoid unknowingly spreading the virus.
People in Lancashire and South Cumbria are being urged to contact their GP if they have any signs or symptoms of lung cancer.
