Regular Covid Testing
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.
Pharmacy test and collect
Over 200 pharmacies in Hampshire are offering collection of test kits to use at home. Please note that this is a national scheme led by DHSC. You can search for your nearest pharmacy on the national site finder map.
From Monday, 26 April, over 40 of these pharmacies are also offering on-site supervised lateral flow device (LFD) testing. This is a drop-in service, but residents are advised to phone ahead and book. Details of all the pharmacies offering testing are available on the County Council’s website.
Alongside the pharmacy scheme, collection of kits will still be available from the symptomatic regional and local testing sites between 2.30pm and 8pm. More information about collection from symptomatic testing sites is on the County Council’s website.
