Testing is available for:

  • all eligible essential workers,  
  • anyone over 65 with symptoms
  • anyone with symptoms whose work cannot be done from home (for example, construction workers, shop workers, emergency plumbers and delivery drivers) 
  • anyone who has symptoms of coronavirus that lives with those identified above.
