Covid-19 testing

Unpaid carers in Bath and North East Somerset are now able to book a Covid-19 rapid test, to prevent the spread of the virus among people without symptoms (asymptomatic).

Around 1 in 3 people with Covid-19 don't have symptoms. Rapid testing (also known as lateral flow test) will help identify cases of the virus quicker, to break the chains of transmission and reduce the spread of the virus in our area.

Getting tested is a really easy way to help keep your loved ones safe. Book here.

The rapid test involves taking a swab from your nose and throat, and takes around 15 minutes to administer. You should receive your results within an hour by text or email.

The rapid Covid-19 test site addresses:

  • 3 Burton Street, Bath, BA1 1BN
  • Ashton Way car park, Ashton Way Keynsham, BS31 2UF
  • South Road car park, South Road, Midsomer Norton, BA3 2DB

For the latest information on rapid testing in Bath and North East Somerset, see the B&NES Council website.
