Covid-19 testing expanded

The Government has said that coronavirus tests will be made available to everyone in England who has coronavirus symptoms and:

  • Is over 65, or;
  • Has to leave home to go to work

This is in addition to testing all asymptomatic NHS and social care staff and care home residents.

Members of the households of those listed above with symptoms – a new continuous cough or high temperature - will also be eligible for testing.

Essential workers with symptoms also remain eligible for testing.

Anyone eligible can book a test using the Government’s online portal.
