All Devon adults can get free COVID-19 tests
Everyone in Devon over the age of 16 years old can now get free rapid lateral flow device (LFD) COVID-19 tests, and should be using them twice a week.
These tests are important to do regularly because they detect people who are carrying coronavirus but don’t have any symptoms, so could be spreading it unknowingly. They are quick and easy, and the results are usually back within an hour.
Steve Brown, Devon’s Director of Public Health, said:
“One in three people with coronavirus show no symptoms. So even if you feel fine, make it a habit to get tested twice a week so you can help prevent the spread of coronavirus in our communities.
“Together with getting vaccinated when invited to, and remembering hands, face, space and fresh air, regular symptom-free testing is a vital part of being able to ease restrictions and life returning to normal as safely as possible.”
We are working hard to make sure it is convenient to access symptom-free testing at a range of locations across Devon. You can:
be tested at one of our many community testing sites
collect home test kits from any of our community testing sites
collect home test kits from NHS testing locations and pharmacies that are part of the Pharmacy Collect Scheme
have home test kits from the NHS delivered to your home.
