Who can apply for a test?

 

You can apply for a test if you are:

  • an essential worker with coronavirus symptoms (high temperature or a new, continuous cough)
  • aged 65 or over with coronavirus symptoms
  • someone who cannot work from home and has coronavirus symptoms (for example, construction workers or delivery drivers)

Anyone with coronavirus symptoms can apply if they live with an essential worker, a person aged 65 or over, or someone who travels to work.
