Please be aware, I’m seeing unverified reports of fraudsters going door to door claiming to be NHS staff conducting coronavirus tests or welfare visits.

NHS staff are not going door to door.

Call the police if someone knocks on your door claiming to be conducting coronavirus tests. Do NOT let them in to your house.
