Covid-19: Asymptomatic Testing Site at Canterbury now open for staff

The Asymptomatic Testing Site on our Canterbury campus is now open for all University of Kent staff to use. 

If you do not have Covid-19 symptoms ie are asymptomatic and would like to be tested, please make an appointment.

Appointments are available from 2 December until 15 December 2020.

Please note that the NHS advises you are tested twice, ideally within 3 days, in order to receive a reliable result.

The Asymptomatic Testing Site (ATS) offers Lateral Flow Tests which are different to the tests offered by NHS Local Testing Sites. Lateral Flow Tests are specifically for those who are asymptomatic. 

We are currently working with the local Public Health Team to arrange for asymptomatic testing to be available for staff on the Medway campus. More information will be provided very shortly.

Please note that if you do have symptoms of Covid-19, you should self-isolate immediately and follow our Staff reporting procedure. Please book a PCR test as soon as you can via the NHS Coronavirus site. Please also let HR and Occupational Health know by emailing and inform your line manager.

To find out more about the ATS and Lateral Flow Tests, please see our dedicated Coronavirus website
