Why is symptom-free testing important and how does it all work? 

If you’re a student living in Oxford, are strongly encouraged to?get tested for COVID-19 twice a week, every week in Trinity term 

You should go to one of the University’s symptom-free (LFD) testing centres to get tested. These are located in easy-to-access sites around Oxford (further details below), and they follow strict safety measures.

 Testing is free and convenient, and there will be staff on hand to assist you.

Regular symptom-free (Lateral Flow Device) testing can detect whether you have COVID-19 before you develop symptoms. It is an important tool in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19, and will help to protect the community.
