Home testing kits for Covid now available

1 min read

Covid-19 home tests are now available for collection from the Newclose Cricket Ground testing site.

As schools have now reopened, households with young people attending education, along with staff and others who will come into contact with them are entitled to collect free packs of 14 tests from 12.30pm to 4pm seven days a week, with no appointment required. You must be aged over 18, and the home tests are for people who do not have any symptoms of the virus.
If you are unable to go to collect test kits you can book an appointment at a community test site or order a home test kit to be sent by post at keeptheislandsafe.org/communitytesting/ or by calling 119.

If you have symptoms or test positive at home you should self-isolate and book a follow-up test at gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or call 119.
