Testing and test kits
Covid-19 testing is no longer free for the majority of people. You can buy lateral flow tests at some local retailers and pharmacies.
Free tests are still available to a small number of people. These include:
- If you have a health condition which means you're eligible for COVID-19 treatments
- If you're going into hospital for surgery or a procedure
- If you work in the NHS or in social care
For further information on testing, please visit the NHS website
While you’re no longer legally required to self-isolate if you have Covid-19, you should try to stay at home and away from others to avoid passing on the virus.
