Free Testing for everyone

Did you know that everyone in East Sussex can now get a free, rapid test to check they’re virus-free?

You can book regular tests (twice a week is recommended) at a range of pharmacies across Sussex if you have no symptoms. You can also collect kits to test yourself at home. Results from these lateral flow tests are ready in 30 minutes. Find out where to get a test near you

Because one in three people with the virus have no symptoms, you may be spreading it to people around you without realising. Regular testing, and self-isolating if positive, is the best way to stop this.

Some employers are also offering testing kits to their staff. Businesses with 10 or more employees have until the end of today (Monday 12 April) to register with the government to receive testing kits. 

If you have coronavirus symptoms you should book a visit to one of the testing sites across East Sussex. There’s more information about coronavirus testing and support here.
