Covid Testing for Parents and Carers

TWICE-WEEKLY LATERAL FLOW TESTS:

https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests

About 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have symptoms but can still infect others. You are advised to do a rapid test twice a week (every 3 to 4 days) to check if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading. You can get regular rapid lateral flow tests if you do not have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Boxes of lateral flow tests can be ordered from the link above or collected in person from a number of locations around Reading. For a list of locations please visit https://maps.test-and-trace.nhs.uk/.

If you have any questions about the testing please visit the link above or contact 119 for further advice,
