Everyone over the age of 11 living, working or studying in Denbighshire not experiencing Covid-19 symptoms can now collect free Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests from the county’s libraries.
About one in three people with coronavirus do not have symptoms but can still infect others.
Cllr Mark Young, the Council’s Lead Member for Planning, Public Protection and Safer Communities, said: “We are encouraging residents to take advantage of having tests available for collection and to take regular LFD tests.
“Getting tested regularly is the only way to know if you have the virus and if people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading.
“Welsh Government is also encouraging school staff and secondary school age learners to undertake LFD tests just before they return to school.”
LFD tests are available for collection at the following Denbighshire libraries for all residents not experiencing Covid-19 symptoms:
Denbigh (LL16 3NU); Corwen (LL210DG); Llangollen (LL20 8NU); Prestatyn (LL19 9AA); Rhuddlan (LL18 2UE); Rhyl (LL18 3AA) ; Ruthin (LL15 1DS); St Asaph (LL17 0LU), please check opening times.
Free LFD tests are also available to collect at pharmacies.
Please do not use an LFD test if you are experiencing any of the main symptoms of Covid-19, a new continuous cough; a high temperature; loss of or change to sense of smell or taste, self-isolate immediately and book a PCR test at www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
