Coronavirus testing in Devon

Follow our guidance about how to get a test to check if you have coronavirus – whether you have symptoms or not.

When should I get a test?

If you have coronavirus symptoms then you should take a PCR test that is provided by the NHS. These are tests that are processed in a laboratory and will confirm if you have coronavirus.

If you do not have symptoms then you should regularly take lateral flow tests, especially if you will be spending time in crowded and enclosed spaces, or before visiting people who are at higher risk of severe illness if they get COVID-19.

Use our ‘Which test do I need?’ tool to find out exactly which test you should take, when to take it, and what you should do after receiving your result.

What should I do if I’ve been in close contact with someone who has tested positive?

Please follow the latest government guidance for contacts of people with confirmed COVID-19.

Workplace testing

Some workplaces are offering testing to their employees on-site or at home.

Carers, personal assistants, front line social care staff and Devon County Council employees can also order and collect testing kits from the DCC PPE hubs.
