COVID-19 home testing kits, suitable for people with no symptoms, will be available from a number of locations in the coming days.
We are running pop-up collection services at a number of locations:
- Wednesday, 8 December - Musselburgh Primary Care Centre (11am-1pm)
- Thursday, 9 December - The Brunton, Musselburgh (2pm-4pm)
- Friday, 10 December - Haddington Community Hospital (11am-1pm)
- Saturday, 11 December - Dunbar Garden Centre (11am-1pm)
Please note that the length of the above sessions is subject to availability. If demand is high and all kits are collected, we may need to leave earlier.
Getting tested regularly – even if you feel well - is seen as an important mitigation in helping to curb spread of the virus. It's possible to have COVID-19 without showing symptoms, which means the virus can be passed on to others without knowing an individual is infectious.
There are other options for people without symptoms to get tested - find out more about these.
