How will I get these tests?
Getting these test kits is easy and there are a number of ways you can obtain tests:
- If you already test through your employer based testing programme you can continue to use that
- Collect self-test kits for home use from a collection site; find your nearest site by visiting https://find-covid-19-rapid-test-sites.maps.test-and-trace.nhs.uk/
- Order a self-test kit online to be delivered to your home https://www.gov.uk/ordercoronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests
Tests are free, fast and easy to use and you can easily report test results online.
Where do I need to go to collect self-test kits in Plymouth? You can collect tests from Pharmacies across the city - if in doubt, ask at the office and we can direct you.
Local information about testing will also be updated on the Plymouth City Council website https://www.plymouth.gov.uk/
Please note that schools are not able to supply testing kits.
