If you’re a key worker who is self-isolating (not able to leave home), you can now apply for you and your household to get tested for coronavirus/Covid-19.
If your test result turns out to be negative, you can safely return to work, as long as:
- You are well enough
- You have not had a high temperature for 48 hours
- Anyone you live with also tests negative
If your test result is positive, or someone you live with tests positive, you cannot return to work. You’ll need to continue to self-isolate
