No symptoms COVID-19 testing (SMART)

“SMART” testing refers to Systematic, Meaningful, Asymptomatic, Repeated Testing using rapid tests – called lateral flow tests – the same tests that have been used in the successful Liverpool pilot, which has seen rates of infection dramatically reducing across the city.

Getting a test if you do not have COVID-19 symptoms

Whole-community smart testing aims to protect those at highest risk and find asymptomatic cases (people without any symptoms).

This will help prevent and reduce transmission in the community. The more people we can test, the better we can fight the virus in our local area.
