West Berkshire Community Testing

Posted September 6, 2021

Update: Monday 20th September 2021


Community Covid-19 testing continues to play a major role protecting your friends and family. Even if you’re double vaccinated, you can still pass the virus on despite being asymptomatic.

To help save lives and protect the community as much as possible, a Community Coronavirus Testing Van will be stopping every day across West Berkshire, talking to communities about the importance of testing and encouraging people to take a free Lateral Flow Test (LFT) self help kit, which you should be using twice a week, and recording the results on the NHS app.

Please see the locations dates and times that the Community Testing van will be appearing at below.

You can stop by to get tested, as well as get shown how to use a self test kit. #Time2Test
