New collection points for free COVID-19 Lateral Flow Device (LFD) test kits

People across Flintshire will now be able to pick up free lateral flow COVID-19 home testing kits from more locations across the county.

About 1 in 3 people with coronavirus do not have symptoms but can still infect others.

Getting tested regularly is the only way to know if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading. 

LFD tests will be available for collection at the following Aura libraries and leisure centres from today (07/07/21).
