Get a PCR test if you have Covid-19 symptoms

If you have symptoms of coronavirus, no matter how mild, it is important that you get a PCR test.

You must self-isolate immediately, even before you take a test and receive a result. You must not attend medical appointments, other than to get a PCR test.

Get a rapid (lateral flow) test if you don’t have symptoms

From Friday 9 April everyone in the UK is being encouraged to get tested for Covid-19 twice a week.
As national restrictions ease, rapid testing is a critical way to reduce the spread and keep us on track with the roadmap out of lockdown.

Rapid Covid-19 tests are free and provide results within 30 minutes.

If you don’t already access rapid testing through an educational setting, or workplace, there are a number of ways you can access rapid tests:
