Rapid testing for anyone without coronavirus symptoms is now available across Hertfordshire.
Key and essential workers who cannot work from home during the current government restrictions are especially encouraged to book a rapid test every few days to help us ensure that essential services are as safe as possible.
Around one in three people with coronavirus do not show symptoms, which means they could be spreading the virus to family, friends, co-workers and into the community without realising. Knowing if you have coronavirus even though you do not have symptoms means that you can protect your loved ones and help to stop the spread of the virus.
Free rapid tests (also known as Lateral Flow Tests) are available by appointment only and bookable up to a week in advance. You’ll need to take your booking confirmation email/text to your appointment and have your mobile phone with you (please ensure it is charged). Results are sent by text and email in 45 minutes.
- To book a rapid test, please visit www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/rapidtest . Please check the website regularly for updates as several new test centres have opened across Hertfordshire.
- If you have symptoms of coronavirus you cannot have a rapid test and must not go to a rapid test centre – instead please book a standard coronavirus (PCR) test at www.gov.uk/coronavirus
