Collect home test kits

If you haven’t done a rapid COVID-19 test before, it’s recommend that you visit a testing centre first to get used to how they work.

Do not collect your tests from a test centre if you are displaying any of the following symptoms or are currently self isolating:

  • High temperature;
  • New continuous cough; and / or
  • Loss or change to sense of smell or taste.

If you have symptoms, self isolate and book a test for those with symptoms through the national testing portal.

You do not need to make an appointment but do not visit a collection point outside opening hours, as it may be used to test people with coronavirus symptoms outside these times.
