Asymptomatic testing for parents and carers
All adults in households with school age children without symptoms can now access regular COVID-19 test kits.
Undertaking regular, rapid COVID-19 testing helps reduce transmission of the virus.
Tests are fast, easy and completely free. There are different ways for a household, childcare or support bubble to collect their test to take at home, twice-weekly:
- Through your employer, if they offer testing to employees
- By collecting a home test kit from a local test site - anyone aged 18 or over can collect 2 packs of 7 tests
- by ordering a home test kit online
You can find details of your local test site here.
You can find further details on how to order lateral flow tests here.
