Mobile Lateral Flow Test and Collect

Enjoy winter safely

It is recommended that we all continue to test regularly to help manage periods of risk such as after close contact with others in a higher risk environment, or before spending time with a more vulnerable person. This will help to keep you and others as safe as possible.

Over the next week, Kirklees Council’s Mobile Test and Collect Team will be visiting the locations listed below where you will be able to pick up your home testing kits or get an assisted lateral flow test.

Please note, testing kits are now in very high demand and will be handed out on a first come, first served basis, the team will leave the site once all the kits have been handed out.
