Free Covid test kits available for anyone without symptoms


The Scottish Government have announced that: “free lateral flow home test kits will be available for pick up without an appointment from many local walk-in or drive-through test sites from 3.30pm each day, or by ordering online or by phone, for people to test themselves twice-weekly.”

I would encourage constituents in East Lothian to take up this offer which is “aimed at finding cases that would otherwise go undetected, so anyone testing positive can self-isolate and avoid transmitting the virus to those around them.”
