Extensive tracking of Covid-19 has identified a single case of the variant first discovered in South Africa in an area of Hayes.

There is no evidence that this variant causes more severe illness, or that the regulated vaccine would not protect against it. 

Everyone working or living in the area should continue to follow national guidance, including frequently washing your hands, covering your face in enclosed public spaces and keeping distance from anyone you don't live with.

Hillingdon Council is asking everyone over 16 who lives in a targeted area to take a Covid-19 test, so they can find the variant and protect you and your loved ones.
