I don't have symptoms but can I still access LFDs to manage my personal risk to others?

Yes. LFD tests will be available for the general public to purchase from retailers such as high street pharmacies.

Anyone who has been told by a doctor or specialist that they are eligible for new COVID-19 treatments will be able to order rapid lateral flow home test kits on GOV.UK (opens in new tab) or by calling 119. Find out who is eligible here (opens in new tab)

People planning to visit someone eligible for new COVID-19 treatments will also be able to able to order free LFD tests.

Support will continue for organisations with staff who work in high risk settings with clinically vulnerable people (health and social care, or in special educational) so they can access LFD tests for regular asymptomatic testing. Please contact your organisations for information on this.
