If you have symptoms
Updated 13 October 2021
New rules apply for people who live in the same household as you. Check if they must self-isolate.
How to book a PCR test
If you live in Essex and have symptoms you should book a PCR test on GOV.UK or call 119.
You can order a PCR test kit to be sent to your home or book an appointment at a walk-in or drive-through test site. The NHS provide us with locations on a weekly basis for the week ahead. Check current locations
If a test result is positive
If your test result is positive, you and members of your household will need to follow the self-isolation instructions on the NHS website.
