The announcement by the council said: “The testing programme for Covid-19 is playing a vital role in helping to keep us all safe by identifying those who have the virus, but no symptoms, so that they can self-isolate and avoid passing the virus to others. 


“Around one in three people who are infected with Covid-19 have no symptoms. Rapid testing using lateral flow test devices (LFT) is a fast and simple way to test people who are not showing symptoms, and helps us to stop spreading Covid-19 without realising it.”
