Symptom-free testing

Testing guidance for England has changed. Most people without Covid-19 symptoms do not need to get lateral flow tests.

Who should still do lateral flow tests.

From 1 April 2022 local testing sites will close. Lateral flow device tests will no longer be available from libraries or other local collection sites.

Lateral flow tests will also no longer be free for most people. Check if you're eligible for free lateral flow tests.
