Getting tested for COVID-19 

The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to common illnesses such as a cold or influenza. You may have one or more of the following:

  • a new or worsening cough
  • fever (at least 38˚C)
  • shortness of breath
  • a sore throat
  • headache
  • sneezing and runny nose
  • temporary loss of smell.

Some people may have less typical symptoms such as only: fever, diarrhoea, muscle pain, nausea/vomiting, or confusion/irritability.

Shortness of breath is a sign of possible pneumonia and requires immediate medical attention. 

You might also be asked to get a test for other reasons.

It is FREE to get a COVID-19 test. You will get sent a text message only if your test result is negative. If your test result is positive, Public Health will call you with advice on what to do next.

You can also call Healthline for advice on 0800 358 5453. This is a FREE, 24/7 service with interpreters available.

Below you can find out your nearest testing location:
