NHS Test and Trace App

Testing

The NHS Test and Trace programme aims to contain the spread of coronavirus.

Testing is available for people with symptoms: a fever or high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste.

If you have symptoms you should self-isolate for at least 10 days (or 48 hours after your fever ends, whichever is longer) and order a test.

We know that there are issues accessing testing at the moment. Please keep trying to book online and stay home for 10 days from when symptoms started. If you are worried about your symptoms please call NHS 111 or your GP.

If someone you live with or have been in close contact with someone who has symptoms or receives a positive test you should self-isolate for 14 days from the first day when they begin showing symptoms or you last saw them.

If you develop symptoms while in self-isolation you should stay home for 10 days from when symptoms began, and try to get a test.

You can order a test by calling 119 between 7am-11pm (seven days a week) or you can request a test online at www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test.
