Negative test result - Day 2 or Day 2 and Day 8 testing

Your coronavirus (COVID-19) test result is negative. You did not have the virus when this test was taken.


Travelling from a green list country (Day 2 test only):

As you have tested negative for COVID-19, you can continue as normal.

Travelling from an amber list country (Fully vaccinated - Day 2 test only):

As you have tested negative for COVID-19, you can continue as normal.

Travelling from an amber list country (Not fully vaccinated - Day 2 and Day 8 test):

If you took your test on day 2 of your quarantine, you must continue to quarantine until you have completed the 10 day quarantine period and have received a negative test result from a Day 8 test. If you took the test on day 8, you may leave quarantine at the end of the 10 day period.

You should self-isolate again if:

  • you get symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – get an NHS coronavirus (COVID-19) test from and self-isolate until you get the results
  • you’re going into hospital (self isolating until the date you go in)
  • someone you live with tests positive
  • you have been traced as a contact of someone who tested positive

For advice on when you might need to self isolate and what to do, go to and read ‘Self isolation and treating symptoms’.

It’s a legal requirement to quarantine when you arrive in England. If you are contacted by the enforcement authorities or the police after you have received this negative result please show them this notification.

I am very happy with the day 2 COVID Test service provided by ZAVAMED. As a matter of fact I never expected that the result would come within such a short time of less than 24 hours. The website is user friendly and the steps of taking the swab and sending back to the lab and so on are well explained.
