Norwich Covid-19 Testing Initiative

All UEA staff and students are invited to register to take part in a two-week trial of the Covid-19 Norwich Testing Initiative. 

The initiative is designed to inform the test and scalability of a Norwich wide SARS CoV-2 screening programme.  

In order to take part people need to be working or resident on the Norwich Research Park or with easy access to site; participants are expected to pick up the kits and administer the tests over a fortnight period delivering these back to drop off points. 

A useful information guide on the process has been prepared and everyone who wants to register should read this first.  

Please note that if you have already expressed your interest in participating you still need to register to take part. 

If you would like to take part please be aware that you need to register by Sunday 19 July.  

Although many expressions of interest have been received we still need more people to take part to help make this plan a reality for the city of Norwich.  

Such a testing scheme could significantly improve the chances for the UK to safely exit lockdown, and prepare us in the best possible way in the event of a second wave.
