Coronavirus (COVID 19) tests

Community collection of - lateral flow tests

Up to one in three people with Covid 19 do not have symptoms and could be spreading the virus without knowing it. Regular lateral flow testing aims to identify people with the Covid-19, but no symptoms, and ask them to self-isolate to protect others, especially our clinically most vulnerable residents and of course, each other.

Everyone in the country is eligible for regular twice weekly rapid testing. 

We thank you for the active and vital part you are playing in this regular twice weekly lateral flow testing regime to help further reduce the spread of Covid-19.
