Test to Release PCR test.
What is the Test to Release scheme?
If you arrive in England from Amber List of Countries outside the UK, Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man you must quarantine for 10 days on arrival unless you have been double vaccinated or are classified as fully vaccinated as are 16-17 year old having just one vaccine. Under the Test to Release scheme, you can choose to pay for a private COVID-19 test once you have been in England for 5 full days and your Day 2 results are negative.
If the result is negative, you can end your self-isolation period.
You can book the PCR test at our pharmacy. This test involves taking a swab sample and sending the sample to the lab for investigations. The results are emailed to you with a certificate by 11.59 the next day if the test is done by 3pm.
