Asymptomatic testing is an important means to keep people safe as restrictions are gradually eased, therefore all those who cannot work from home and who are not covered under existing schemes at workplaces, childcare settings, schools, colleges and universities are being encouraged to access lateral flow self-test kits as they are rolled out across Wales.

To begin with, the rapid coronavirus testing kits will be made available for collection from local test sites across Wales.

The Welsh Government are also looking at other collection venues for test kits to be made available, as well as them being directly delivered to people’s homes.

At each testing site people will be able to collect the rapid lateral flow tests between 8am and 1pm.

They will not need to make an appointment before collection.

Sites will close for a deep clean and re-open for symptomatic PCR testing between 2pm and 8pm day.

Each person will routinely be able to collect two packs of seven LFD self-test kits for home use.

It is recommended that tests are undertaken twice a week with the results recorded on the UK Government portal.
