Asymptomatic testing (COVID-19)

In line with the Scottish Government's Test and Protect Transition Plan, asymptomatic testing is no longer available to the general public.

All asymptomatic test sites in North Ayrshire have now closed, and packs of Lateral Flow Tests (LFT) are no longer available from test sites, pharmacies or libraries.

In addition, free LFT tests can no longer be ordered online for the general public, with a few exceptions.

The groups who are still eligible to order free tests online are:

  • a contact of a positive case who is fully vaccinated
  • a positive case who is self-isolating and is eligible to end self-isolation early 
  • visiting a hospital or care home
  • eligible for coronavirus treatments
  • an unpaid carer

If you are in one of the above categories, find out how to order tests via NHS Inform.
