Testing for Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Testing for people with symptoms

If you have symptoms and need a COVID-19 test or have a question about them, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for Coronavirus testing.

You are required by law to self-isolate if you are told to do so, or if you develop COVID-19 symptoms. 

We’ve put together the enclosed Self-Isolation FAQs to help you do so.

Testing for people without symptoms (Asymptomatic Rapid Antigen testing)

Testing people who live or work in Bolton

A COVID-19 testing programme is helping protect the Bolton community by identifying those who have the virus but may not realise it.

Asymptomatic rapid testing (LFD) is available to people who live or work in Bolton.

Many people infected with COVID-19 suffer no symptoms but still risk passing it on to their colleagues, family, friends and others.

How can you access testing?

At an LFD test site

Tests are being delivered at key sites in the borough with results available in as little as 30 minutes.
