Free Covid-19 Testing kits for those without symptoms
To help reduce Covid-19 risks to everyone at school, their families and contacts, the PC would like to highlight and encourage, parents and others in households of school children to use the free twice-weekly home testing kits for those withoutsymptoms. Home test kits can be delivered to your door, so you can test yourself and your family without leaving your home.

You can order 1 pack of home test kits containing 7 tests for home delivery. Your tests should arrive within 2 days.
