You can ask for a test:
+ for yourself, if you have coronavirus symptoms now (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste).
+ for someone you live with, if they have coronavirus symptoms.
Testing is most effective in the first 3 days of COVID-19 symptoms appearing. Testing is considered effective up until day 5. No testing should be undertaken after day 5, unless for a specific reason.
NHS Trust staff should continue to access testing through their own organisation.
