Everyone can now get a Covid test in Medway

Testing is now available for all us living and working in Medway if you don't have any Covid symptoms. One in three of us will have Covid with no symptoms so it's really important to get tested regularly to reduce the spread of the virus
testing for all

Up until now, testing has only been available for people from key professions such as teachers, police and healthcare workers. Now, with more slots available, testing has been opened up for everyone.

Booking is on a first come, first served basis and is recommended for anyone who is leaving the house for work, to go shopping, for exercise or for medical reasons.

We are being encouraged to get regular tests, every two weeks if possible.
