Leicester City Council staff will be going door to door with coronavirus test kits this week.

Staff and trained volunteers will be knocking on doors to deliver testing kits and to speak with residents about the coronavirus.

Today(FEB2): Hamilton, St Saviours

Tomorrow(FEB3): Stoneygate, St Matthews and St Peters, Northfields
