Community testing: Rapid COVID-19 test

The council is encouraging residents to get tested as around one in three people have COVID-19 without any symptoms and could be spreading the disease without knowing it. The rapid lateral flow swab tests provide results within an hour and help identify those who unknowingly carry the virus. It also enables those who test positive and their contacts to self-isolate, which can help drive down the R rate locally and save lives.
