Households and families with school-aged children can now access COVID-19 home testing kits. The 'community collect' service launched this month to households with primary and secondary school and college age children, as well as those providing childcare and in support bubbles. Testing kits are to be used twice weekly, meaning people can self-isolate faster if they test positive.
Home-testing kits can currently be ordered online for home delivery at www.gov.uk/coronavirus (click here to be directed to the 'rapid lateral flow testing for households and bubbles' webpage) or can be collected from Topping Lane PCR test site near Brunel University.
Kits will also be available for collection shortly from the borough's seven asymptomatic testing sites, for which you can find out more at www.hillingdon.gov.uk/community-testing.
