RAPID testing sites in Moray for those without coronavirus symptoms have been confirmed for the next fortnight.

Testing aims to drive down local Covid-19 rates and transmission by identifying positive cases more quickly, as people can spread the virus to others before symptoms appear.

Moray residents who don’t have any of the three classic Covid-19 symptoms – a new continuous cough, temperature, loss or change in sense of taste or smell – are encouraged to get themselves tested.

There is no need to book.
