Regular Covid Testing: People who are unable to work at home

Community Testing is managed by Hampshire County Council for more information about Covid testing please visit their pages here: https://www.hants.gov.uk/socialcareandhealth/coronavirus/test-and-trace

You can find out more about testing below.

Why community testing is important

1 in 3 people with coronavirus do not have symptoms but can still pass it on to others. Regular testing for people without symptoms is important to help stop the virus spread and protect our loved ones. Community testing will help us identify more positive cases quickly and support people to self-isolate, therefore breaking chains of transmission and protecting communities. Let’s all help keep our community safe.

Who can get a test?

The community testing scheme is for those without symptoms of coronavirus who are in the following groups:

  • People regularly leaving home to go to work, as they can't work from home
  • People not covered by an existing workplace testing scheme or other programme
