    Hi,

    Sorry mods if not in the correct forum, feel free to move.

    I've family coming home from England for xmas, the mother and father are willing to take the chance (even though they are in a risk category).

    They are not willing to isolate before coming over (yes stupid I know!)

    I was wondering where is the antigen test that I can purchase to try and mitigate the risks of them coming back over.

    I heard it on a newstalk show this morning.

    Why would you be buying the test?
    If they want one they'll get one I'd imagine

    Cause they (the family members) are cheap AF.

    I wouldn't chance it, the Uk is riff with Covid, London in particular, why would you risk putting already at risk parents through that.

    My sister came back from London earlier this week. She has been out and about over there. But she had two negative tests the last week and a half so London is not necessarily rife with positive cases.

    I'd suggest OP lays low if they are so concerned.

    If they get a proper test done five days after arrival and it is negative, they will be able to end their isolation. Tell them to stop messing about and do that.

    It's not my choice so I can't avoid them, I'm just asking where people got the tests?

    Is the test for them or you?
