Update on asymptomatic testing at courts and tribunals – 14.04.21

Home test kits will be available for collection from all courts and tribunals and will be offered to all professional court users, legal professionals, judiciary, contractors, jurors, witness services and staff who attend scheduled hearings. We have kits on order, and will be distributing them from mid-April 2021 across our estate.

In England, those who don’t visit a court or tribunal site regularly, work from home, or where home delivery is more convenient, will be able toorder home-testing kits online via the new government scheme from 9 April. You may also be able to get a rapid test from an NHS site. The best way to find a location is to use the NHS COVID-19 Test and Vaccination Site Finder. In locations where new virus variants have been found the government advises you to take a COVID test, whether you are showing symptoms or not.
