covid-19 testing types poster

Please find below an information poster detailing the two different types of COVID-19 tests you can use and when you should use them.

PCR test

For people with symptoms of COVID-19 such as a Fever (hot or cold chills), Cough or Loss of taste/smell or to confirm a positive lateral flow test.

Book your PCR test online by visiting www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or by phoning 119.

Lateral Flow test

For people without symptoms of COVID-19 who are regularly testing. If you have a cough or a fever, a lateral flow test is NOT sufficient to rule out Covid infection.
