Asymptomatic Third Sector key workers can access rapid Covid-19 testing at two sites across the city, and employers can order home testing kits through the national system until 12 April.
The testing sites are located at:
- Headingley Campus, Leeds Beckett University, LS6 3QS: open Monday to Friday 9am to 2pm
- City Campus, Leeds Beckett University, LS1 3HE: open Monday to Friday 8.30am to 2pm
There’s no requirement to book. Staff can just attend whichever site is most convenient. They will be required to show staff/organisation ID, or proof that they’ve been invited to attend for a test. Staff should have two tests during a week-long period, and are recommended to be tested even if they’ve received their first vaccination dose.
