Results and next steps

You will have a lateral flow swab test and will get your result within half an hour. If the result is positive, you will be told to self-isolate, follow the national guidance and you will be instructed to have a PCR test to confirm your positive result. If the result is negative, you must still continue to observe social distancing guidelines, wear a mask in public and regularly wash your hands.

Please keep following the rules and limit your social interactions. It's important to self-isolate, not only after receiving a positive test result but also while you wait for the results.
