Covid-19 testing in Norfolk and Waveney

There is currently a high national demand for coronavirus (Covid-19) tests due to a number of factors including the return of schools and the demand for testing from international travellers.

If you don’t have symptoms and have not been advised to take a test don’t get a test.

The Government advises that only people with symptoms of Covid-19 should book a test. These symptoms are a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste. As soon as you experience Covid-19 symptoms you must book a test within 5 days and self-isolate for 14 days. Tests should be booked via www.gov.uk or by calling NHS 119.

If you have difficulty getting a test on Day 1 of having Covid-19 symptoms, or the location or time are not convenient, be patient and try again a few hours later or the next day. More tests are made available throughout the day at www.gov.uk or by calling NHS 119.

Only people with pre-booked appointments will be accepted at regional testing centres or mobile testing units. However, if you have requested a home testing kit, this will be delivered to your nominated address for you to complete at home.

It’s really important that if you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms that you do not visit your GP surgery, local hospital, or pharmacy.
