Covid is still circulating in our local communities and that’s why it’s vital that we each keep doing our bit by regularly self-testing.
We know 1 in 3 people show no symptoms at all. To help find cases that would otherwise have gone undetected, free self-testing kits are available to everyone in the region who does not have symptoms. Including those who have already received the vaccine as there is still a possibility of transmission.
Below are many ways to get a free self-test kit easily and quickly.
What is a self-test kit?
Often called lateral flow tests, a self-test kit enables a rapid result and is the first step in helping to detect those who carry the virus unknowingly. It’s important to detect symptomless people as they’re still infectious and can pass the virus on to others who are more vulnerable.
