Symptom-free coronavirus testing

Community symptom-free testing

Council staff will be visiting communities in the city offering testing kits to residents and encouraging them to test themselves twice a week. This will support the Council’s efforts to increase the number of people being tested for COVID-19 to identify symptom-free cases and stop the spread of the virus.

As well as handing out tests door-to-door, we're holding a number of community symptom-free testing events.

The handing out of tests is not as the result of increased cases in a particular area or the presence of a variant of concern; it represents the latest drive to make testing more accessible and frequent.

Staff will have Council ID cards for identification and will be handing out free tests and advice, so residents will never be asked to pay.
