Covid-19 community testing is available targeted at people without coronavirus symptoms who cannot work from home, and their families, provided they live or work in Tendring district.

This will help prevent and reduce transmission in the community through increasing the testing capacity and giving people who are asymptomatic (someone who doesn’t have symptoms) an opportunity to be tested.

Around 1 in 3 people have coronavirus without symptoms so could be spreading the virus without knowing,so this testing is designed to identify these people and make sure they self-isolate.

Community testing means anyone can get a free test and play their part in keeping others safe. Even though we are targeting those who cannot work from home and their families, we won’t prevent others who live or work in Tendring from collecting tests.

The more people we can test, the better we can fight the virus in our local area.
