Everyone over the age of 11 living, working or studying in Flintshire and who are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms can get free Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests. 

1 in 3 people who have coronavirus do not have symptoms and are carrying the virus without knowing it, putting friends, family, and loved ones at risk. 

To help stop the spread everyone in Flintshire is being urged to get tested.  The more people who take the test the better we can stop the spread. 

LFD tests are only for use by people who do not have symptoms. 

If you have symptoms you should self-isolate immediately and book a PCR test online at www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.

You will need to follow the Self Isolation guidance here: https://gov.wales/self-isolation
