People in Wales who cannot work from home encouraged to use lateral flow self-tests

All those who cannot work from home are being encouraged to access lateral flow self-test kits as they are rolled out across Wales.

It is hoped that improving the availability of lateral flow tests will make regular asymptomatic testing for coronavirus more convenient and accessible for people not covered under existing schemes at workplaces, childcare settings, schools, colleges and universities.

As many as 1 in 3 people may have COVID without displaying symptoms which means asymptomatic testing is an important means to keep people safe as restrictions are gradually eased.
