You can get a free NHS test if:

  • you have any symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
  • you're getting a test for someone you live with who has symptoms
  • your local council asks you to get a test
  • you're taking part in a government pilot project

⛔️ Do not log on to the app if you are self-isolating or you are waiting for a COVID-19 test result.

What happens next

If you are told to stay at home (self-isolate) by NHS Test and Trace or the NHS COVID-19 app, follow the NHS advice.

Contact tracing

After you get a positive test result, you may be contacted by NHS Test and Trace or someone who works for your local council.

You'll be asked for information about where you've been recently and who you've been in close contact with.
