Do your bit – get tested and keep those you’re meeting up with safe

Coronavirus testing is helping to stop the spread of the virus. 1 in 3 people don’t have symptoms and can pass the virus on without knowing. Regular rapid testing is a quick and easy way you can play your part and help stop the spread.
