Adults in West Sussex who have to leave home for work or caring responsibilities can now book a symptom-free Covid-19 test.
As efforts to combat the spread of the virus continue, more local testing is being rolled to help identify as many people as possible who have Covid-19 but not the symptoms.
The pan-Sussex Community Testing Programme launches this week as a partnership between West Sussex County Council, East Sussex County Council and Brighton & Hove City Council.
It offers free, rapid lateral flow tests to anyone who isn’t showing signs of Covid-19, who can’t work from home and who can’t access testing via other means.
Anyone over the age of 18 can book a test at a participating pharmacy anywhere in Sussex
Further details, including how to book in Crawley are available on the West Sussex County Council website www.westsussex.gov.uk/communitytesting
More pharmacies will be available across Crawley and Sussex in the coming weeks, making it even easier to get a test close to where you live or work.
People across West Sussex are urged to continue to ‘act like you have the it’ as the best way to avoid spreading coronavirus, keep West Sussex safe and help us come out of lockdown.
