Covid19: When to take a lateral flow test and when to take a PCR test?

Whilst Lateral flow tests are important in identifying asymptomatic cases of COVID19 infection, they are not designed or suitable for those who have coronavirus symptoms.

It is very important that children, young people or adults who have any symptoms of COVID19 undertake a PCR test and NOT a lateral flow test. PCR tests can be booked online to take place via a testing site, or a test delivered to your home at (see under the heading “Get a Free PCR Test”).
