Coronavirus home test kits for home workers ran out in a matter of minutes on Friday after 1,000 were purchased this morning. On Thursday, Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced all essential workers in England could register for tests on the government’s website if they or a family member have virus symptoms. But how can you get a test?

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.

You can register to get a test here.
