How to do a Covid lateral flow test at home for you and your family

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will announce this afternoon that everyone in England is to be offered free, twice-weekly coronavirus tests.

The lateral flow tests – which can provide results in around 30 minutes – will be available from Friday, regardless of whether people have symptoms.

People will be able to obtain a test through a home ordering service, workplace or school testing programme, or by collecting one at a local test site.

And although the tests are quick, it’s important they’re done correctly to give accurate results.

But how do you administer one? The video above outlines what you have to do.

The Prime Minister said the scheme would help stop fresh outbreaks, enabling the authorities to identify and control new variants of the disease.

“As we continue to make good progress on our vaccine programme and with our road map cautiously easing restrictions under way, regular rapid testing is even more important to make sure those efforts are not wasted,” he said.

“That’s why we’re now rolling out free rapid tests to everyone across England – helping us to stop outbreaks in their tracks, so we can get back to seeing the people we love and doing the things we enjoy.”
