Who can get a symptom-free home test

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

You should continue to take COVID-19 tests regularly and before high-risk situations to protect yourself and your loved ones.

If you are up to date with your vaccinations, you should continue to get regular symptom-free tests. This is because you can spread the virus to others without knowing.
