From Monday 26th April, volunteers and those who are unable to work from home can order a lateral flow self-test kit online to be delivered directly to their home.
As 1 in 3 people who have COVID-19 do not display symptoms, asymptomatic testing is key in maintaining people’s safety as lockdown restrictions are eased.
Improving the availability of lateral flow tests allows regular asymptomatic testing to be convenient and accessible for those not already covered under existing schemes, and it will be a strong step towards keeping the spread of the virus under control.
If eligible, you can order one home testing kit, which is seven tests, at a time, or you can collect testing kits in person at a local collection point, in which case you can receive two testing kits (14 tests).
You are recommended to take tests twice a week and you must record your result on the UK Government portal (here).
