Covid-19 Lateral Flow test (LFT) ordering
Lateral flow testing is available for all adults.
The lateral flow tests (LFTs) are easy to use, can be carried out at home and give a result in thirty minutes.
All adults can access free lateral flow testing through the NHS.
There are different ways to access lateral flow testing:
- through an employer if they offer testing to employees;
- by visiting a LFT testing site for testing, or collecting a home test kit from a testing site. In Corby these are at Lodge Park Sports Centre and Hazelwood Community Centre;
- by ordering a home test kit online; Order lateral flow home test kits online.
Lateral flow testing is only suitable for adults who are not displaying Coronavirus symptoms. Carrying out regular, rapid testing helps reduce transmission of the virus.
If you are not already testing regularly, this is something we would urge you to consider for the benefit of the whole community.
