Changes to LFT Testing provision in West Lindsey

From Thursday 11 November 2021, residents will be able to collect Lateral Flow Testing (LFT) Kits from their local selected pharmacies – or via ordering kits online.

This change is due to Lateral Flow Testing Sites in Gainsborough and Market Rasen closing from the 5 November and 10 November respectively.

The PCR Testing site in Gainsborough remains open daily for residents to access if they have Covid-19 symptoms.

The provision for Lateral Flow Testing Sites in West Lindsey was always expected to be temporary, with the sites at Market Rasen and Gainsborough being eventually replaced by both the successful vaccination roll-out and by the national testing campaign.

We would like to thank everyone who has helped us with the LFT sites over the past few months, and we encourage residents to continue regularly testing every week.
