Free COVID-19 testing has now ended for most people in Scotland with and without symptoms.
Testing is only available for specific groups to protect high risk settings, support clinical care and for surveillance.
You can order lateral flow tests if you are:
- visiting a hospital or care home
- an unpaid carer
- eligible for covid treatments
- applying for the self-isolation support grant.
If you are a health and care worker you will continue to have lateral flow testing through your workplace.
Find out more about staying at home and testing at the NHS Inform website.
If you need a test to prove you do not have coronavirus before travelling overseas, you will need to arrange private testing.
