To help protect our family, friends and communities, and keep us heading in the right direction on the roadmap, it's vitally important to get tested regularly and self-isolate when required.

If you don't have symptoms, make it your habit to get tested twice a week. Order tests to your home, collect locally or book a local supervised test. Collection points and test sites are available across West Sussex.
