Community testing sites across the borough are now distributing free coronavirus home testing kits to anyone aged 16 and over.
With some restrictions now lifted, allowing two households and up to six people to reunite outdoors at a safe distance, regular home testing offers some comfort we are not putting friends and family at risk.
There are many options for accessing your free home test kits.
You can visit the GOV.UK website and order them straight to your home, or call the NHS on 119 any day between 7am to 11pm, calls are free. These are usually delivered within two days by Royal Mail.
Your local pharmacy may also stock the home tests for you to collect. Search for your local pharmacy.

- Havant – Library, Meridian Centre - Monday to Friday, 9.30am-5pm and Saturdays, 9.30am to 4.30pm.

About one in three people with coronavirus do not have symptoms but can still pass it on to others.
Twice weekly (rapid lateral flow) testing of people without coronavirus symptoms is important to help stop the virus from spreading.
