​How to get lateral flow tests​

About 1 in 3 people with coronavirus do not have symptoms but can still infect others.

Getting tested regularly is the only way to know if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus from spreading.

Rapid lateral flow tests are for people who do not have coronavirus symptoms.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms you need to book a PCR test.

In Wales, you can get lateral flow tests for you and your household if you volunteer or cannot work from home.

If you get tests through your employer or education setting you should continue to do so.
