How community testing for asymptomatic people works in Torbay.
Community testing provides regular lateral flow (LFD) tests for people without symptoms of COVID-19.
One in three people with COVID-19 has no symptoms. Regular testing helps to identify them so they can isolate and prevent spread of the virus.
Testing is now available for everyone in the community - anybody who lives or works in Torbay.

Locations of mobile units will be shown from 14 April
Households and bubbles of pupils and staff at schools, colleges and early years providers can collect home test kits from the Local Testing Site at Clennon Valley during specified hours.
Regular LFD tests are for people without symptoms. Anyone with symptoms should book a PCR test as normal: follow the usual guidance and book a test.
As well as being able to use our local community testing facility at Quay West, businesses that are registered with Companies House and registered charities can apply for LFD testing kits from the government before 12 April.
