Anyone of any age who has symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) can get a free test using the Government’s national testing portal (opens in a new window). You should only get this test if you have coronavirus symptoms or have been asked to get tested by a doctor or a public health professional or by your local council.
You may also be offered a test if you do not have symptoms. These tests are not booked via the national testing portal, but may be offered by your local council, your employer, or your place of study.
For more information about testing and vaccination across the whole of Lancashire and south Cumbria visit the NHS Lancashire and South Cumbria ICS website (opens in a new window).
