Free rapid testing for all as COVID restrictions eased

TAMESIDE residents are able to access free, regular, rapid coronavirus testing as part of the easing of COVID restrictions.

Alongside the rollout of the vaccine, regular testing of those without symptoms is an essential part of the easing of restrictions as it will help to quickly suppress the spread of COVID and break the chain of transmission.

The rapid lateral flow tests are quick, easy and give a result within half an hour.
