Community testing is also referred to as lateral flow testing or rapid testing. It's a major tool to help identify and isolate individuals who have COVID-19 but do not have symptoms and may be spreading the virus to other people without knowing.
Any member of the public, without COVID-19 symptoms, can get tested. It is aimed at people who cannot stay home during lockdown, due to work commitments.
You can also call 0333 772 6144.
**However, if you have one of the following symptoms you must book a symptomatic test by calling 119 or visiting www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test**
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
