If you're aged 18 or older and do not have coronavirus symptoms, or have not been told to self-isolate, you can pick up 2 packs of 7 tests from our community testing centres to test you and your family at home.
You can order the kits from the government website and you can also pick up test kits between 9am and 3pm from the following places:
- Every Tuesday from 13 April: Killamarsh Junior Athletics Club car park, 284 Sheffield Rd, Killamarsh, Sheffield. S21 1ED
- Every Wednesday from 14 April: Amber Valley Area Office (bottom car park), Cemetery Lane, Ripley. DE5 3HY.
- Every Thursday from 15 April: The Agricultural Business Centre (far end of car park), Agricultural Way, Bakewell. DE45 1AH
- Every Friday from 16 April: The Arc (right hand side of car park), High St, Clowne, Chesterfield. S43 4JY
- Every Saturday and Sunday: Glossopdale School car park, Newshaw Lane, Hadfield, Glossop SK13 2DA
If you do collect kits from our community testing centres please make sure that you allow enough time as you'll be asked to take a test at the centre before collecting your supply. Taking a test at the centre provides a useful introduction to the testing process and allows you to understand more about what you need to do with your home testing kit. You don't need to bring any additional information with you when collecting the test kits.
The home test kits come with instructions on how to complete the test, but there's also a video on how to do a COVID-19 self test (rapid antigen test).
If you test positive you need to get a second confirmatory test and you can do this by tel: 119 or booking a test online. You should self-isolate until you've taken this second test and had the results.
Safe disposal of lateral flow testing waste
After you've taken a lateral flow test at home please dispose of the waste carefully.
The outer cardboard packaging and the paper leaflet from the test kit can be recycled in your usual kerbside recycling bin. None of the plastic packaging is recyclable.
Please place all of the items from the actual test kit and the plastic packaging into the bag provided and then put this bag into your usual general waste bin. In all Derbyshire districts, apart from Amber Valley, this is your grey or black bin. In Amber Valley it's your green bin.
