Mobile community testing is being offered across Aberdeenshire for people who do not have Covid-19 symptoms.

Testing without symptoms is entirely voluntarily, but by visiting a mobile community testing centre and taking a lateral flow test, residents will be able to better protect their family, colleagues and the wider community by ensuring they are not spreading the virus to others without knowing it.

People can also collect packs of personal test kits from the centres.
