The government is expanding testing of symptomatic patients. You can apply for a test if you are:
an essential worker with coronavirus symptoms
aged 65 or over with coronavirus symptoms
someone who cannot work from home and has coronavirus symptoms (for example, construction workers or delivery drivers)
Anyone with coronavirus symptoms can apply if they live with an essential worker, a person aged 65 or over, or someone who travels to work.
You can also apply for a test if you have a clinical referral from NHS 111 online.
Coronavirus symptoms are a high temperature or a new, continuous cough.
To apply for a test please visit the government website.
