Covid testing – “Go for the Flow”.

People of Devon encouraged to ‘Go for the Flow’ and take twice-weekly tests.

 

We want everyone to feel safe when they leave their home, while taking the necessary precautions when out and about. That’s why we’re encouraging adults in Devon to include regular rapid lateral flow testing as part of their weekly routine. It’s free, painless and results are back within the hour.

Devon County Council have mobile vans which move around the county offering testing to people without symptoms of COVID-19. This service is available for anyone 18 and over that doesn’t have access to workplace testing and we are offering two tests per week in line with the government recommendations. You can also collect packs of home testing kits from our friendly staff. One of our community testing vans will be in the Morrisons Car Park in Bideford on Mondays between 1100 and 1900 and again on Thursdays between 1530 and 1900.

Lateral flow tests are only for people who do not have symptoms. Anyone displaying any of the main COVID-19 symptoms must still book a PCR test at www.gov.uk

Any changes to times or days for our testing vans will be updated on our website: devon.cc/flow Case rates throughout Devon remain low, but with restrictions lifting and socialising returning, now is the time to take regular tests as a part of your routine to help break the chain of transmission.
