There are two types of swabs that you can take in order to test for coronavirus – rapid lateral flow and PCR.
PCR test results will be sent to you within one to three days.
Rapid lateral flow tests are tests which give a quick result – similar to a pregnancy test.
As these are usually completed at home, you must report the result as soon as possible.
You cannot report a result after more than 24 hours and can only report one result at a time.
To report the result online, you need the barcode on the test strip or the ID number printed under it (the test strip is the part of the kit that shows your result).
A mobile phone number will also need to be supplied so a confirmation text can be sent.
You can also report your test result by calling the phone number in your test kit’s instructions.
If you have received a positive result from a rapid lateral flow test, you should follow up with a PCR test to confirm.
You may be contacted by NHS Test and Trace or someone who works for your local council who will ask for information about where you've been recently and who you've been in close contact with.
You should also inform those in your support bubble and your workplace or school/ college.
If you test positive for Covid, you and everyone you live with must isolate and stay at home.
It's a legal requirement to self-isolate if you test positive or are told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace.
You could be fined if you don't.
You should not leave the house for any reason, including for work or to go to the shops.
Self-isolate immediately if you have symptoms, have had a positive test result or someone you live with has Covid or has tested positive.
You must also isolate if someone if your support bubble has Covid or has tested positive, or you arrive in the UK from a country with a high coronavirus risk.
If you have not had symptoms, you must self-isolate for 10 days from your test date.
If you have symptoms, you must self-isolate for 10 days from the day your symptoms started, if earlier than when you took your test.
Those who still feel unwell or have symptoms after a negative test should stay at home until they feel better.
If symptoms worsen or do not go away, contact a GP.
You should isolate after a negative test if someone you live with has symptoms, tested positive, or hasn't yet been tested, you've got to go into hospital, you've been told to by NHS Test and Trace, or you've travelled from abroad.
The NHS website advises that if you're being sick, have diarrhoea or have a high temperature, stay at home until 48 hours after they've stopped.
You should check with your employer before going back to work.
If you get coronavirus symptoms after the test, get tested again.
