Gildernew welcomes Rapid Testing scheme

Sinn Féin MLA Colm Gildernew has welcomed the announcement that Rapid Testing kits will be available at local pharmacies.

The chair of the health committee said:

“Rapid testing is an important tool in preventing the transmission of the COVID – 19 virus.

“This coming winter we are faced with significant pressures across the entire health and social care system. 

“Our community pharmacies have played a significant role during the COVID-19 pandemic and especially in the vaccination roll-out and now in the Rapid Test scheme.

”I urge everyone to avail of the Rapid Testing kits that are available from your local pharmacy and to test regularly for the virus through the winter months. 

”If we are to suppress this virus we all have a role to play by continuing to observe public health guidance.”

”Testing yourself and your family members regularly has been made easier through this scheme.”
