Symptom-free COVID-19 Testing for Frontline Workers

Symptom-free COVID-19 testing (known as asymptomatic testing) is available for frontline workers in West Lancashire. 

Who can get tested?

If you cannot work from home or if you have physical contact with other people as part of your job or you are an unpaid carer and do not have any COVID-19 symptoms, you can attend one of the symptom free testing sites. We would encourage you to have regular tests to ensure you are not at risk of passing on the virus whist working in the community. 

You must not attend these sites if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19. If you are experiencing symptoms, please book a test here.
