Get Tested for COVID-19

From Friday 1 April 2022 COVID-19 testing will change. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms you should self-isolate and order a lateral flow test. All PCR testing sites for the general public will close. The latest information about COVID-19 testing and isolation guidance can be found on the Welsh Government website.

When to do a lateral flow test (LFT) and how to access a test

Lateral flow tests are available, free of charge to everyone in Wales. 

If you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, you should self-isolate and take a lateral flow test.

The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

  • a high temperature
  • a continuous cough
  • loss or change of taste or smell

You can order lateral flow tests (LFT) online or call 119 between 7am and 11pm (calls are free). Lateral flow tests are no longer available to collect in locations such as pharmacies.

Continue to self-isolate until you get your test result.
