What to do if your Rapid (Lateral Flow ) test is positive

Anyone who has a positive test must self-isolate immediately. The local contact tracing team or the national test and trace service will give you advice on what to do.

It is vital that people identify their contacts to help stop the spread of the virus.

Anyone who has had a confirmed positive result for COVID-19 must not book a Rapid (lateral flow) test until 90 days after the date of the positive result.
