Me and the wife went to a drive-in test centre on Thursday morning and got the results back last night, both negative. Back to work for the last day before Christmas for me tomorrow!

Sounds like it would’ve been less palaver to get a testing kit from Hong Kong subway station!

Seen that they are starting surge testing in certain Bristol postcodes and they are asking people who don’t have any symptoms too get a test if they live there but what about if you work in one of those postcodes? as I do and every lunch time 2 or 3 of the work lads go off to a local supermarket to get food so technically they are having the same potential exposure as those living there so does this mean we should get tested?

Was more does it only apply to households or do they want all those living/working in the post codes to get a test? obviously we will carry on regardless unless someone came down with symptoms and tested positive I just didn’t want to turn up for a test and be told it didn’t apply to me.
