This includes testing sites at your workplace, if it is available, where you can take a supervised test, or via workplace collect, where you can pick up a box of tests to use at home.
You should speak to your employer to see if they have already registered and are setting up workplace testing, or find out more about business testing for employees on GOV.UK.
Testing at school, college or university
Pupils are already being given tests to use at home twice a week throughout term time and the school holidays. Staff at schools, colleges, universities and nurseries should receive tests via their employers but they can also order the tests online via LFD Direct if required.
Pupils are not included in the rapid, regular symptom-free testing in primary school and nursery settings. Primary school aged children should only be tested if they are displaying symptoms, in which case their families should follow the guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection and book a PCR test for the child.
Testing is voluntary, but staff, secondary school aged, college and further education pupils and students are encouraged to participate as testing regularly helps to reduce the spread in school and college settings through asymptomatic transmission.
Order tests online via LFD Direct
For people who can’t access tests through the other routes, you can order the tests online or by calling 119, which will be delivered to your home. You can order one box per household each day. You will need to be aged 18 or over to order to test via this service.
If you do the tests at home, you'll need to report your results to NHS Test and Trace online or on the app.
You can collect home test kits for yourself from participating pharmacies to be carried out at home. NHS England’s site finder allows you to search pharmacies near you that offer pharmacy collect. Over the coming weeks, more pharmacies will be signing up to the programme.
