COVID-19 rapid testing available for all in Luton

Everyone living, working or studying in Luton can now get a free rapid Covid-19 test - even if you are not displaying symptoms.

We would encourage businesses to promote this opportunity to their staff to help reduce the chance of infection within your business and to your customers.

Many people have the Covid-19 virus without showing symptoms and can still spread it to others.

There are a number of centres across Luton. If you have no symptoms one option is Luton Central Library, St George’s Square, LU1 2NG, Monday to Sunday 8am - 8pm.
