Mass lateral flow testing for COVID-19

Get tested, break the line of transmission and keep our campus and each other safe.

These tests can identify some (but not all) coronavirus cases in people who don't have any symptoms (asymptomatic).

When to get tested

Get tested regularly. Test before leaving or returning to Bristol and if you are moving into a new household. You should also test before coming on campus. Read the latest NHS advice for further information.

Even if you are fully vaccinated and come into contact with a positive COVID case, you are expected to take a daily lateral flow test for the next seven days. Read the Government advice for further information.

If you need a PCR test

If you've been in close contact with someone who has tested positive or you've been asked to get a PCR test, book a test at our mobile site. 

How to get a test

  1. Collect lateral flow tests from campus to do at home
  2. If you cannot get to campus get a test locally or sent to you

If you have symptoms of coronavirus, do not come for a lateral flow test. Find out what to do if you think you have coronavirus.
