These kits, known as lateral flow testing kits are simple and quick to use and are sometimes called rapid tests.

You can get rapid lateral flow testing kits for twice weekly testing if:

  • You DO NOT have COVID-19 symptoms
  • You have not been told to self-isolate

You must be 18 or over to collect the kits. Testing is not recommended for children who go to primary school or who are younger.

You should not access rapid lateral flow testing kits in this way if:

  • You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous 90 days
  • You get tested through your workplace or education setting
  • You need to take a test for international travel

Home testing kits can be ordered online for delivery here.
