INFORMATION ABOUT RAPID LATERAL FLOW TESTS

ABOUT RAPID LATERAL FLOW TESTS

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

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

Research shows rapid tests are a reliable test for COVID-19. They give a quick result and do not need to be sent to a lab.

Even if you’re vaccinated, you could still catch the virus or pass it on. Doing rapid tests helps to protect yourself and others.

WHEN TO DO RAPID TESTS

Do rapid tests on days when you’re more likely to catch or spread COVID-19.

FOR EXAMPLE, DO A TEST BEFORE YOU:

mix with people in crowded indoor placesvisit someone who is at higher risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19

You should also do daily rapid tests (1 a day for 7 days) if you’ve been in contact with someone with COVID-19 and are either:

fully vaccinatedunder 18 years and 6 months old
