Bracknell Forest residents who are most at risk of catching and spreading COVID-19 without knowing it, can now go for asymptomatic testing twice a week.  

Around one in three people who have coronavirus have no symptoms and will be spreading it without realising it.  

Widening testing to those showing no symptoms (called ‘asymptomatic’), will help find people who are infected and infectious but unaware they might be spreading the virus. This can help to break the chain of transmission and provide you and your clients peace of mind that you are virus free. 

In Bracknell Forest, this type of community testing will initially be offered to:

July Racing Weekend | July 9th & 10th      www.ascot.co.uk 

Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty as to when spectators will be able to return to Ascot Racecourse, we are currently not selling tickets to any Ascot racedays, with racing remaining behind closed doors until further notice.
Nevertheless, you can still enjoy following all the action from home.
The highlight of this competitive racing weekend is the Group 2 Summer Mile Stakes, held on the Saturday. One of the most important mile contests of the season, the race has attracted an impressive line-up in previous years including former Queen Anne Stakes winners Lord Glitters and Accidental Agent. 
Last years winner Mohaather ran a spectacular race under Dane O'Neill following an unlucky run at Royal Ascot a few weeks previous. The Marcus Tregoning trained superstar followed up this impressive performance with a win in the Group 1 Sussex Stakes at Goodwood, proving his talent at the top level of the sport.
