Rapid testing for MK workers and informal carers

Find out how to get a test if you leave home to work or care for others

Around one in three people who are infected with COVID-19 have no symptoms and could be spreading the disease without knowing it.

To help find more of these cases so people can isolate and break the chain of transmission, we are offering free rapid COVID-19 tests to anyone who has to leave their home to work, as well as people who act as informal carers for family, friends or neighbours.

To be tested, bring your work ID (if relevant) and a smartphone to the Central Library. No need to book. Results will be sent to you within around 45 minutes.

The centre is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9.30am to 4.30pm, and on Tuesday and Thursday from 9.30am to 7pm.

No-one with symptoms will be tested at this site. Instead, they should use the existing free NHS testing service. Anyone with one or more of these symptoms – a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – should book a test at nhs.uk/coronavirus or by calling 119.
