Liverpool is to receive roughly 40,000 Covid testing kits as part of the city’s ambitious mass testing scheme.
The kits are being delivered to those unable to reach a designated testing centre and so far 13,500 have reportedly been distributed across the city. Recipients are instructed to register the kit when it reaches them, choose up to 3 people to take tests with it and then take it to a designated drop off centre. Home collections can be arranged for those unable to reach a centre. While awaiting test results it is not required for kit users to self isolate unless they are displaying symptoms of COVID-19, have returned from a badly affected country, or have been in contact with an active case. Matt Ashton, the Director of Public Health, said that Liverpool’s mass testing scheme could be a ‘game-changing moment’ that will help to ‘identify and isolate infected people faster’.
