Rapid lateral flow tests are for people who do not have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms. This usually involves rubbing a long cotton-bud (swab) over your tonsils (or where they would have been) and inside your nose. The tests can give you a result in 30 minutes. They use a device similar to a pregnancy test, and do not need to be sent to a lab. You can do a rapid test at home, or at a rapid lateral flow test site.
