Only book Covid test if you have symptoms
Due to lab testing reaching national capacity, there may be a delay when trying to book a Coronavirus test, or receiving the result. If you do not have symptoms, do not book a test. To help ensure everyone who really needs a test can get one, please only book a test if you have symptoms.
Anyone with coronavirus symptoms can get a test.
Coronavirus symptoms are:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
You can get a test for someone you live with if they have these symptoms. Do not get tests for people you live with who do not have these symptoms.
You can book a test by calling 119 or online at nhs.uk/coronavirus.
