No Symptoms? Test4Glasgow - Help Fight Covid-19

Updated 30/9/21

 

 

 

No symptoms - 2 free tests per week

Free, fast and regular testing for people who do not have Covid-19 symptoms is available to everyone in Scotland.

Lateral Flow home test kits are available to anyone who does not have symptoms to test themselves twice a week to help control the spread of the virus and protect your family, friends, work colleagues and your community.

You can have the virus and be infectious, yet have no symptoms. This could mean you are spreading Covid-19 to loved ones and in Glasgow communities without knowing.

Free test kits, containing seven tests per box, can be picked up from local walk/drive-through test sites, ordered online and delivered to your home by post or you can collect them from local participating pharmacies.

Postcode checkers accessed via the link at the bottom of this page will help you find your nearest Covid test site and participating pharmacy. You must be aged 18 to collect test kits. Adults can collect kits for younger people.

Glasgow residents, even if you have been vaccinated, are being asked to routinely test themselves at home or at an asymptomatic test site to help prevent cases of Covid increasing. 

Asymptomatic test sites are open at the locations below.
