Applying for a coronavirus test


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.
