Community Lateral Flow Testing Sites

Rapid result COVID-19 test centres now open to everyone.

Cumbria County Council’s 11 rapid-result COVID-19 test centres are now offering FREE testing to all Cumbrians who want to help keep themselves, their family and those they come into contact with, safe.

Rapid result testing is only for people who do not have COVID-19 symptoms.

How it works

The rapid result test centre use Lateral Flow Device tests which are processed on site without needing to be sent to a laboratory. The tests give a result in 30 minutes and help identify asymptomatic carriers, people who do not feel unwell but do have COVID-19 and are infectious. These people can then self-isolate to protect others.

Getting tested is simple and takes about 15 minutes and results are sent by text or email normally within an hour, meaning people don’t have to hang around.

The tests are free and no booking is required, but please note the test sites are located in school premises, so are only open for testing at the times stated.
