Testing for people with symptoms
If you have one or more of the following Covid-19 symptoms you must isolate and book a test immediately:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
You can also call 119 to get a test.
If you are unsure about whether to get a test, please check the official list of symptoms on the NHS website, which is reviewed regularly.
How to request a home testing kit
If you are unable to visit a test centre, you may be able to request a home test kit by calling 119 - you will need an email address to do this.
You can also ask for a courier to collect your test once you have done it. These kits are only for people with symptoms.
