18th March 2021: Covid-19 testing
18/03/2021< Back to the news
The most important symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of any of the following:
- a new continuous cough
- a high temperature
- a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, arrange to have a PCR test. Stay at home while you are waiting for a home self-sampling kit, a test site appointment or a test result.
Do not use the rapid lateral flow testing service as this is only for people without symptoms.
Order a test for people with symptoms online or call 119.
