Free COVID-19 Lateral Flow Test Kits for Your Service Users

Thu 4 Nov 2021

Continued asymptomatic testing is especially important as we approach the winter period. It is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19, even if you are fully vaccinated.  Around 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have any symptoms. This means they could be spreading the virus without knowing it. Testing regularly using lateral flow increases the chances of detecting COVID-19 when infectious but are not displaying symptoms, helping protect both the individual and staff/volunteers providing a service.

Staffordshire County Council are actively working with the DHSC to reach under represented and disproportionately impacted groups across the county and believe your service users may benefit from access to self-test kits. We are able to supply you with individual boxes of test kits which can be used either on-site or taken home.

If this is something you would be interested in please email LFTEnquiries@staffordshire.gov.uk

We look forward to hearing from you.
