To help identify Suffolk residents who are not showing symptoms of COVID-19 but are infected, we have introduced community testing in Suffolk.
It is is also referred to as lateral flow testing or rapid testing.
It is aimed at people who have to leave their home during lockdown, for example due to work or caring commitments, or for essential shopping.
It will help identify and isolate individuals who have COVID-19 but do not have symptoms and may be spreading the virus to other people without knowing.
Book a test if you're asymptomatic (not showing symptoms)
Book an appointment online or call 0333 772 6144 if you do not have COVID-19 symptoms.

However, if you do have the following symptoms you must book a standard COVID-19 test immediately by visiting www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or calling 119.
