COVID-19 How to get tested

11 November 2020 (by admin)

Just a reminder on how to apply for a COVID-19 test if you are having symptoms

Get a free NHS test to check if you have coronavirus

Who can get a free test

You can only get a free NHS test if at least one of the following applies:

You have a high temperature

You have a new, continuous cough

You’ve lost your sense of smell or taste or it’s changed

You’ve been asked to by a local council

You’re taking part in a government pilot project

You can also get a test for someone you live with if they have symptoms.


England and Northern Ireland

You need to get the test done in the first 8 days of having symptoms.

On days 1 to 7, you can get tested at a site or at home. If you’re ordering a home test kit on day 7, do it by 3pm.

On day 8, you need to go to a test site - it’s too late to order a home test kit


Stay at home if you have symptoms

If you’re getting a test because you have symptoms, you and anyone you live with must self-isolate until you get your result. This also applies to anyone in your support bubble (where someone who lives alone - or just with their children - can meet people from 1 other household).


You must also self-isolate if you cannot get a test.
