Daily Testing of Close Contacts and Twice Weekly Testing if You Have Tested Positive for Covid19 in the Previous 90 days.

Daily Testing of Close Contacts and Twice Weekly Testing if You Have Tested Positive for Covid19 in the Previous 90 days.

Latest information from the Public Health Team and UK Health Security Agency (17/12/21)

  • Anyone who is identified as a close contact by NHS Test and Trace should undertake daily testing as per new guidance, irrespective of whether they tested PCR positive in the previous 90 days.  As a close contact they are at risk of becoming infected again, and therefore a daily LFD test would pick this up.  If the LFD test is positive, they should isolate and get a confirmatory PCR test.  Only if this is negative can the self isolation period end.
  • Anyone else who has tested PCR positive for Covid19 in the last 90 days should NOT undertake twice weekly LFD testing.  They need to wait for 90 days and then start the regular LFD testing.
