Community Collect Scheme

The Community Collect Scheme is where you can collect COVID-19 self-test kits to carry out at home.

These are tests for people who do not have any symptoms of COVID-19 -  if you have symptoms, you must book a test or call 119, and self-isolate until you get your test result.
