Regular testing for COVID-19 is essential in order to detect people who have the virus – with or without symptoms. Importantly, they can then self-isolate and stop passing on the virus to other people.

Knowsley residents are urged to take up regular (twice weekly) testing to support the borough’s recovery efforts and ensure that we continue to move along the Government’s recovery.

Remember if you have symptoms or if you, anyone in your household or support bubble tests positive for COVID-19, you must self-isolate for 10 days to prevent the further spread of the virus.
