Anyone with symptoms of Covid-19 should follow the self-isolation guidance and seek a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.
Should I also have a PCR test?
It is a requirement to have a confirmatory polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test following a positive lateral flow device (LFD) test taken at home or at an Asymptomatic Test Site (ATS), such as those situated in some workplaces, universities, secondary schools and colleges.
This means that staff, pupils or students receiving any positive LFD test result should immediately follow the isolation advice for themselves, their household and close contacts and must seek a confirmatory PCR test.
You can now also have a PCR test if you are a close contact of a confirmed case.
The first question asks if the individual is a key worker - tick "no"
The next question asks about whether the individuals has symptoms - tick "no"
The next question asks about whether the individual has been asked to have a follow up test - tick "no"
The next question asks if you are part of a government trial - tick "no"
The next gives a number of options including: "I've been told to get a test by my local council, health protection team or healthcare professional" - tick this option and then it should take you through all the other questions required for booking a test.
