Guidance for families on the door-to-door testing for COVID19 have been made available by Leicester City Council.
Don’t be afraid to ask to see I.D. All of their community teams will have either a Leicester City Council or NHS ID badge that they can show to you. If you are in any doubt whatsoever, please don’t be afraid to establish contact with the City Council on 0116 4542300. There is information available on the Council’s website here: https://www.leicester.gov.uk/your-council/coronavirus/coronavirus-in-leicester-latest-news/
***Community testers will NEVER ask for any money when discussing COVID testing. If someone claiming to be a community volunteer makes any request for money, it should be reported to the police immediately***
Community volunteers will wherever possible and depending on the location they are in, encourage members of the public to go to a nearby mobile testing unit, or help them book a test online, or offer a home testing kit.EASYREADtestcovid19
If undertaking a home test, completed home tests will be picked up later the same day and sent for processing. Results will be delivered in a text, directly to the individual’s mobile phone within 48 hours.
The City Council’s social media pages are the best way to keep up to date with which neighbourhoods the community testing volunteers are focusing on. Links below:
