Get a free NHS test today to check if you have coronavirus

Anyone with coronavirus symptoms can get a test.

Coronavirus symptoms are:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

You can get a test for someone you live with if they have these symptoms. Do not get tests for people you live with who do not have these symptoms.

Stay at home if you have symptoms

If you are getting a test because you have symptoms, you and anyone you live with must stay at home until you get your result.

Anyone in your support bubble must also stay at home.
