A new 99p Covid-19 test has been announced, as free testing is set to end on April 1.

The affordable, Government-approved Covid-19 test is being offered by Medisave.

The test kit is suitable for self-testing, as it uses the lower nostril only, with results within 15 minutes.

From 1 April, the Government will:

  • Remove the current guidance on voluntary Covid-19-status certification in domestic settings and no longer recommend that certain venues use the NHS COVID Pass.
  • No longer provide free universal symptomatic and asymptomatic testing for the general public in England.
  • Remove the health and safety requirement for every employer to explicitly consider Covid-19 in their risk assessments.

The test can be ordered online, with next day delivery available, from medisave.co.uk/covid-lateral-flow-test.html
