Rapid home testing kids for Covid-19 are now available to those in universities and working professionals unable to get some through their work or university.
Previously the tests were mainly for school and college pupils and those living with them or in their social or childcare bubble.
The tests come in packs of seven and can be collected from a number of pharmacies, and from rapid testing sites.
Leicester’s rapid sites include the Adult Education Centre in Belvoir Street, the Fosse Neighbourhood Centre in Mantle Road and Coleman Neighbourhood Centre in Rowlatts Hill.
However, you can also collect tests from pharmacies such as Boots in Gallowtree Gate and in Highcross, as well as Pharmasite Ltd in London Road.
To find the nearest place to collect free tests, go to maps.test-and-trace.nhs.uk or to order them online, go to https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests.
