From October, people collecting home COVID-19 testing kits from a local pharmacy will need to register for a QR code.

Resident can easily generate a QR code by calling 119 or visit www.gov.uk/get-collect-code There will also be poster displayed in pharmacies with a QR code that can be scanned to take you directly to the registration page.

Knowsley Council is urging residents to continue testing, including home testing, to keep the borough COVID safe as we enter the winter months.

Testing regularly (at least twice a week) for COVID-19 helps reduce the risk of transmission through asymptomatic cases.

Around 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not suffer any symptoms meaning that they could unknowingly spread the virus.
