Taking the home test
The coronavirus (COVID-19) home test includes instructions on how to take the swab test. The test strip in your test kit will tell you your result after 30 minutes.
If you test positive you and your household must:
- self-isolate immediately
- take another test to confirm the result. Phone 119 or visit GOV.UK to order or book a test
- tell your child's nursery, school or college if you have a positive test result within your household
- follow stay at home guidance.
Record your test result
You must record the test results of all home tests online.
Disposing of a home test kit
Carefully dispose of the test device and equipment into your household waste bin.
