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.
