Community Covid Testing

Leave a comment

Dear Tollcross Families,

 

Regular testing for people with no COVID-19 symptoms is one of the ways we can all help keep people safe and stop the spread of COVID-19 in Edinburgh.

 

You can come along to Fountainbridge Library from Monday 31 May to Sunday 6 June. We’re open from 9am to 6pm. Testing is free, fast and safe. There’s no need to book and it will only take around 15 minutes to take the test and 45 minutes for people to be sent their results.

 

If you can’t get to the library, you can order free rapid lateral flow test kits online or by phoning the National Testing Centre on 119. 

 

Almost 1 in 3 people infected with Covid-19 don’t have any of the usual symptoms but are potentially passing on the virus unknowingly to family, friends and others in the community. By getting tested people can find out if they are positive and self-isolate at home to stop spreading the virus to others. People who have been vaccinated are also encouraged to take a test as they may still carry the virus.
