Take a COVID-19 test, even if you don’t have symptoms
Regular testing for people with no COVID-19 symptoms is one of the ways we can all help keep our friends, families and communities safe. High school students are already offered regular lateral flow tests. We are now offering rapid community testing for people with no COVID-19 symptoms in neighbourhoods in Edinburgh where case numbers are or have been high.
Infection rates are higher in the community around your school than in some other areas of the city, so we’re asking people in the community with no COVID-19 symptoms to come for a test at Fountainbridge Library. We’re open from 9am to 6pm from Monday 31 May to Sunday 6 June. Children under 16 will need to be accompanied by a parent or carer.
If you can’t get to the library, you can order free rapid lateral flow test kits online or by phoning the National Testing Centre on 119.
As always anyone with symptoms should self-isolate and book a PCR test online or by calling the National Testing Centre on 119.
