There is a new coronavirus (COVID-19) symptom-free home testing service. Read more about the symptom-free home testing service on GOV.UK.

Who can get a symptom-free home test

Home test kits are available to anyone who lives or works in Medway.

Everyone in the household should test at home twice a week to help prevent more outbreaks.

If you have had your first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, you should continue to get regular symptom-free tests. This is because you can spread the virus to others without knowing.
