As lockdown has been further easing it is important to remember to keep social distancing and wear face coverings when you are out and about.


Another way to keep the virus under control is to be tested regularly, as many people do not experience covid symptoms or very mild symptoms.

It is important to note that:


You can get rapid lateral flow devices (LFDs) if:


  • You do not have COVID-19 symptoms
  • You live in Scotland
  • You have not been told to self-isolate


You should not access rapid LFD tests in this way if:


  • You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous 90 days
  • You can get tested through your workplace or education setting (ask them for rapid LFD tests)
  • You need to take a test for international travel
  • Carry out a rapid LFD test at home (order online or collect at test site)
  • Order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests on for home delivery
  • If you cannot place an order online, you can order by calling 119


You can collect your packs of LFD tests from a COVID-19 test site between 3.30pm to 8pm. You do not need to book an appointment.
