Details of home and regional testing for key workers and their households, and when best to take the test

This information is sourced from GOV UK:

You can only apply for this test if you’re a key worker who is self-isolating because:

  • you have coronavirus symptoms
  • you live with someone who has coronavirus symptoms

Via this link you can:

  • Request a home test kit (up to a total of 5 tests for yourself and members of your household age 5 and over)
  • Book to visit a regional test site (up to a total of 3 tests for yourself and members of your household age 5 and over)

The test involves taking a swab of the nose and the back of the throat
