Changes to lateral flow testing

COVID-19 cases rose again last week across both Dorset Council areas
and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council areas
and COVID-19 hospital admissions continue to rise.

Changes to lateral flow testing

There has been a change to when you should take your lateral flow test. In England, you should take a rapid lateral flow test:

if you will be in a high risk situation that day

before you visit people who are at higher risk of severe illness if they get COVID

You are at higher risk of catching or passing on COVID when: 

in crowded and enclosed spaces

there is limited fresh air
