SHDC Update - Go for the flow! Get your free COVID-19 tests now

Everyone in Devon over the age of 16 years old can now get free rapid lateral flow device (LFD) COVID-19 tests, and should be using them twice a week.

These tests are important to do regularly because they detect people who are carrying coronavirus but don't have any symptoms, so could be spreading it unknowingly. They are quick and easy, and the results are usually back within an hour.

Steve Brown, Devon's Director of Public Health, said:

"One in three people with coronavirus show no symptoms. So even if you feel fine, make it a habit to get tested twice a week so you can help prevent the spread of coronavirus in our communities.

"Together with getting vaccinated when invited to, and remembering hands, face, space and fresh air, regular symptom-free testing is a vital part of being able to ease restrictions and life returning to normal as safely as possible."

We are working hard to make sure it is convenient to access symptom-free testing at a range of locations across Devon. You can:

Holsworthy and Moretonhampsted are the latest communities to be added to the list of mobile rapid testing stops, that now include Ashburton, Axminster, Barnstaple, Bideford, Buckfastleigh, Crediton, Cullompton, Dartmouth, Dawlish, Exeter, Exmouth, Great Torrington, Honiton, Ilfracombe, Ivybridge, Kingsbridge, Lynton-Lynmouth, Newton Abbot, Okehampton, Seaton, South Molton, Tavistock, Teignmouth, Tiverton and Totnes.

To find out the days, times and locations of a testing centre near you, visit our website. It is regularly updated with any changes to the community testing service schedule so please check before you set off. There is also a revised timetable for communities with scheduled visits on Bank Holiday Monday 3 May.
