Who Can Get a Test?

Rapid Covid-19 testing is available for anyone without symptoms of coronavirus who lives or works in North Somerset. The aim initially is to invite people who cannot work from home to get regular tests, such as those delivering key services like childcare, transport, essential shopping, and support for vulnerable people.

You must not attend the test site if you have any Covid-19 symptoms or if you have been told by NHS Test and Trace that you must self-isolate. Those with symptoms can order a test on the GOV.UK website.

How Does the Test Work?

Lateral flow tests are carried out at North Somerset’s rapid testing sites, giving results in under an hour. It takes less than 15 minutes to administer the test.

The person being tested completes their own throat and nose swab, and the sample is then processed by testing staff on site (full instructions are shown in the testing booth). Once the sample has been handed in, the person leaves the centre and will be contacted either by text or email with the test result and advice on what to do next.
