This test is part of the States of Guernsey’s response to the pandemic and its commitment to controlling infection.

You should test yourself twice a week, every 3 to 4 days – for example, every Monday and Thursday or Wednesday and Sunday. You must only use this test kit if you are asymptomatic (have no symptoms of COVID19) and if you have not been vaccinated. You should not use this LFD test if you have had a positive COVID19 test within the last 90 days. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, you must stay home, contact your line manager and contact the Clinical Helpline (01481 756 938 / 01481 756 969).
