You can now collect free rapid coronavirus tests from 25 different pharmacies in the Harrogate district.

These are for anyone who doesn’t have symptoms, to test themselves at home.

Everything you need to carry out the test yourself is provided, and you can get a result in around 30 minutes.

It’s all part of the government’s recent expansion of the ‘lateral flow’ test scheme, the tests are seen as an important tool in ensuring we stay safe as we come out of the national lockdown.

There are 14 pharmacies in Harrogate offering the tests, 5 in Knaresborough, 3 in Ripon, and one pharmacy in each of Boroughbridge, Masham and Pateley Bridge.

You can see all of the pharmacies currently offering the tests by entering your town or postcode on the NHS website here
