The sites will provide lateral flow testing, followed by a confirmatory PCR test if the first result is positive. Dedicated support will be available on-site for anyone who needs help to self-isolate as a result, including advice on how to access financial support and food packages.
The Fife site is the first to open since asymptomatic testing was successfully trialled in Johnstone in December. Further proposals for Ayrshire & Arran, Dumfries & Galloway, Greater Glasgow & Clyde, and Grampian have been agreed, and discussions are underway with a number of other boards and local authorities for agreement in the coming days.
Further information and updates on the Fife Community Testing programme is available here.
People should only attend the community asymptomatic testing sites if they do not have any COVID-19 symptoms. Do not attend if you:
have COVID-19 symptoms
are currently self-isolating because you have been identified as a close contact
have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days
