Excellent! Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:

We do Rapid Lateral Flow Tests twice a week (and Herself has a PCR* every week as she works in an old folks home) and they've all come back negative so far.

The NHS will let me order a pack of 7 tests for free every day, and the are delivered within 24 hours. Which is nice. The tests still kick in my gag reflex every time though ...


* Polymerase Chain Reaction - results in two days as opposed to the 20 minutes of the RLF but less false positives.
