The Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) have published guidance for farmers on TB testing during the coronavirus pandemic. This guidance, including an FAQ, can be found on the TB Hub website.
APHA has prepared advice for vets in order to ensure a consistent approach to the prioritisation of TB testing across Britain. There are currently no plans to cancel any statutory requirements for TB testing. APHA is continuing to monitor the situation, and adjustments to TB testing instructions may be made as appropriate. Further details will follow as the COVID-19 pandemic progresses.
All government advice in relation to the coronavirus outbreak should be followed including self-isolation requirements if you have symptoms of the disease. If you live with others, and you or one of the household have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14 day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. Social distancing should be maintained, wherever possible, especially if you are in a risk group defined by Public Health Wales.
