Asymptomatic testing in Newcastle

Asymptomatic testing in Newcastle

Supervised Lateral Flow Device (LFD) testing has now been suspended from Newcastle Civic Centre. As self-testing kits have become increasingly accessible across the city, demand for supervised testing has diminished as a result.

However, regular testing remains an important tool in managing the spread of Covid-19. As many as one in three people with the virus display no symptoms at all, and taking a LFD test twice a week can help to identify symptomless but potentially infectious cases of the virus and help to prevent wider outbreaks.

Anyone without symptoms of Covid-19 should use LFD tests to help control the virus. If you do have symptoms of Covid-19, or your LFD test result is positive, you must immediately self-isolate and book a PCR test from the Government website.
