COVID-19: Get tested

Numbers of new coronavirus cases are rising steeply in Salford – Salford is now one of the top ten areas in the country for coronavirus rates. We can all do our bit to stop the virus from spreading by getting tested.

There are two types of test:

If you have COVID-19 symptoms or feel unwell in any way, you need to get a PCR test.

If you have no symptoms and you feel well, you can do twice weekly rapid tests (also known as lateral flow tests) to check you don’t have the virus. This is because one in three people with COVID-19 have no symptoms and may be spreading the virus without knowing even if they have had the vaccine or a previous COVID-19 infection.

Salford residents are not being asked to take part in surge testing at the present time. We will update this page if the situation changes.
