You arrive in England on Sunday. Monday will be your first full day of quarantine. You can take a test no earlier than the 5th day after arrival in England, which is Friday. You must continue to quarantine while you await your test result.
Please note, if your 5th full day falls on Sunday. Your kit will be shipped overnight on Monday and should be received on Tuesday. If your TTR collection date (5th day) falls on a Saturday your kit will reach our lab no earlier than Monday as Royal Mail does not make shipments on Sundays. Please make sure to plan accordingly to avoid any delays for your results
If the test result is negative, you can stop quarantine as soon as you receive the result. You still need to take the coronavirus test on or after day 8.
If the test result is positive, you need to quarantine for another 10 days. Count the 10 days starting from the day after you took the test, or from when you first had symptoms if that is easier. People you live with in the UK, or people you are staying with, should also quarantine for 10 days from the date of your positive test.
If the test result is inconclusive, you must continue to quarantine. You can choose to take another privately provided test to find out if you can stop quarantine early.
You may be fined if you do not quarantine. The fine is £1,000 for the first time, up to £10,000 for further breaches.
