Test, trace and isolate

The test, trace and isolate steps continue to play an important role in managing Covid in our community by preventing the virus spreading.

Negative test result

If your PCR test result is negative but you still have symptoms, you may have another virus such as a cold or flu. You should stay at home until you feel well. Seek medical attention if you are concerned about your symptoms.

You can stop isolating as long as:

  • you are well;
  • no-one else in your household has symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19; and / or
  • you have not been advised to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace.

Anyone in your household who is isolating because of your symptoms can also stop isolating.
