Around 1 in 3 people with coronavirus do not have symptoms and can therefore spread the virus without knowing.
Symptom-free testing (also known as rapid testing or community testing) uses lateral flow device tests (LFDs) to identify people who do not have coronavirus symptoms but may be infectious.
This helps us identify and isolate more people who might spread coronavirus without knowing.
Lateral flow tests are safe, inexpensive and approved by the government. Read our FAQs or watch our video about self-testing to find out more.
