The government has announced free testing will still be available in the following situations:

We recognise that there are many groups who are not eligible for free NHS COVID-19 tests, but are still at a higher risk of infection, either through their occupation or through clinical vulnerability. We will continue to provide free COVID-19 LFD tests to some of the most vulnerable groups of people for a limited period.
This includes people visiting friends and family members in care homes, those caring for or visiting vulnerable relations in their own homes and the Bay’s volunteer workforce. We will review demand and maintain the offer while case rates remain high.
Please email Communitytesting@torbay.gov.uk if you would like further information or wish to be considered for free tests under this offer.
