Regular Asymptomatic Covid-19 testing for Volunteers


17th February 2021

Register now for regular asymptomatic Covid-19 testing

Public Health Dorset, on behalf of BCP and Dorset councils, has set up a new rapid testing service for volunteers and employees who cannot work from home due to the nature of their role

One in three people who have Covid-19 show no symptoms and can therefore spread it without knowing. The aim is to identify cases quickly and to break the chains of transmission, protecting you, your family and you co-workers.

We are offering weekly testing, using a Lateral Flow Device, at one of a number of test centres that have been set up across the county. You will need to be able to commit to six weeks of testing.

Access to this service is for people who don’t already have access to asymptomatic testing. If you already have access to asymptomatic testing e.g. through an NHS or care home employer, you are not able to access the community service.

If you would like to access weekly testing register your interest at https://dorset-self.achieveservice.com/service/Community-Rapid-Testing  Once approved for testing, details of how to book will be sent to you.
