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 have a test (swab test) to check if you have coronavirus (COVID-19) now. You can choose to take the test:
- at a test site near you today
- with a home test kit
This service is for people in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Only get a test if you have coronavirus symptoms or have been asked to get tested.
Do not use this service to get a test in order to travel to another country. You can pay for a private test.
This will help make sure people who need a test can get one.
