Order Home Testing Kits
If you are struggling to get to a test centre to get tested before coming on-site, you can now order seven home testing lateral flow tests to do at home. Visit the link below and then click “Start Now” and fill in the online form.
UNISON@LJMU have also requested that IMT get testing kits to distribute to staff, we also support the option of setting up an onsite none symptom testing facility.
How rapid lateral flow tests work:
Around 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have symptoms.
Rapid lateral flow tests help to find cases in people who may have no symptoms but are still infectious and can give the virus to others.
The test usually involves taking a sample from your tonsils (or where they would have been) and from your nose, using a swab. You can get a result in 30 minutes.

Only come on-site if you have been invited to as part of Teaching, Teaching Support, Practical Support or Learning Support. The majority of staff should be continuing to Work From Home. Small numbers of staff are being allowed back on-site, in a safe manner. Please make sure you follow all the social distancing guidelines and don’t wander around the buildings unnecessarily.
