Let's Keep Covid in Check

Explore Essex safely this summer. If you're visiting Great Notley, Hadleigh or Thorndon on these selected dates, visit a pop-up stand to collect your free self-test kits.

We’re here to help you escape the crowds. But if you find yourself in a busy area, don’t forget to:

– put on your face covering
– keep your distance
– wash your hands or use sanitiser

The rules have relaxed, but Covid-19 hasn’t. Taking twice-weekly self-tests will help you and others to stay safe.
Regular testing is the only way to know if you’ve caught Covid-19. Self-test with your family during the summer holidays and make sure you’re all safe to socialise.

Let’s look out for each other and Keep Covid in Check. You can get FREE self-test kits from one of our pop-up stands at the following Explore Essex Country Parks.
