All essential workers with symptoms and anyone with symptoms whose work cannot be done at home is now eligible for testing. Trade union officials in these groups are eligible for testing.

Essential workers and those who cannot work from home can book a test through the Government’s online self-referral portal, which allows them to register for a home test kit or book a drive-through test at a regional test site.

Testing is also available through mobile and satellite test centres that are placed to where need is greatest.
