Community Testing

With 1 in 3 individuals with COVID-19 not showing symptoms, Community Testing can help identify those people who are infected and potentially infectious, but asymptomatic and unaware that they might be spreading the disease, so that they can isolate and protect others.

These tests are quick and you get the results within 30 minutes to 2 hours. We have testing sites in Batley, Dewsbury, Ravensthorpe and Huddersfield (see below for full addresses) - no need to book, just turn up any day between 8am and 8pm. 

If your community test comes back positive OR you have COVID-19 symptoms, book a more in-depth PCR test via www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.

PLEASE NOTE that during the national lockdown from Thursday 7th January 2021 the community testing sites are only open to critical workers as all other people are urged to stay at home.
