Knowing who has COVID-19 is vital to stopping its spread.

Large-scale weekly testing can help to identify people who have the virus but do not have any symptoms.

This programme is delivering weekly testing in organisations across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, including in schools, colleges, and universities. The programme uses simple, non-invasive saliva tests, with results delivered within 24-48 hours.

You can find more information about the programme on this site. This information is temporarily living on this Southampton City Council site and will be moving to shortly.

If your child attends a participating secondary school or college in Southampton, Portsmouth, Hampshire or the Isle of Wight, or you are a member of staff, your organisation will have registered you automatically.

Please do not contact the programme team if you have not received an invitation to participate.

If you have coronavirus symptoms, you should book an NHS test immediately.
