  • for someone you live with, if they have coronavirus symptoms
  • for yourself, if you have been told to have a test before you go into hospital, for example, for surgery

Find out how to get a test at nhs.uk/coronavirus or call 119. 

If you test positive for coronavirus (COVID-19):

You’ll be contacted by the NHS Test and Trace service by email, text, or phone and you'll be asked where you've been recently and who you've been in close contact with. This will help the NHS contact anyone who may have caught the virus from you. More information on what to expect if you have tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) can be found here.

If you've been in contact with a person who has coronavirus:

NHS Test and Trace will contact you by email, text or phone. If you're told you've been in contact with a person who has coronavirus, follow the NHS Guidance and stay at home for 14 days.

  • Work from home if you can 
  • Limit contact with other people 
  • Keep your distance if you go out (two metres apart where possible) 
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds
