Getting tested if you do not have symptoms (asymptomatic)

About 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have symptoms but can still infect others.

Lateral flow tests (rapid tests) help to check if someone has COVID-19. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading.

Order or collect free lateral flow home kits (rapid tests)

Order free lateral flow home kits online for home delivery.

Or collect your free kits from the following places in Buckinghamshire:

  • some local pharmacies
  • many local libraries
  • Council Access Points
  • rapid testing vans (this service is weather dependent and will close during December)

Visit NHS.UK for a list of local collection sites.

If you test positive (self-isolation)

View the current guidance on self-isolating on the NHS website.

If you’re unsure what you can and can’t do, we offer help if you’re self-isolating.

For financial support, you may be able to apply for a payment for self-isolating (Test and Trace Support Payment).
