Covid-19 - the right test helps protect us all


There are TWO different types of Covid-19 tests, which test you usually take depends on whether or not you have symptoms.  It's really important that people understand the difference between the two types of tests and when they should be taking them. Testing correctly and regularly will make sure we are keeping infection levels low and our communities safe.
