Testing for Covid19

If you have symptoms of coronavirus

If you develop symptoms of coronavirus, you will need to self-isolate and phone your GP. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. The GP will assess you over the phone. If they think you need to be tested for coronavirus, they will arrange a test.

  • shortness of breath
  • breathing difficulties
  • fever (high temperature – 38 degrees Celsius or above) or chills

Other symptoms are fatigue, headaches, sore throat, aches and pains.
