Unlike previously, testing for COVID-19 is now only being used in a very targeted way in order to protect people at higher risk of serious illness and those who may need extra medical care.
You can still access testing if:
- you have a health condition which means you’re eligible for new coronavirus treatments
- you're applying for the self-isolation support grant
If you are in one of the identified groups you will be able to order a home testing kit online.
