Negative test result - Test to Release
Your coronavirus test result is negative. You did not have the virus when the test was done. If you were self isolating as an international arrival you may stop self isolating.
You should self isolate if:
- you get symptoms of coronavirus (you should get an NHS coronavirus test 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’ve 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 www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ and read ‘Self isolation and treating symptoms’.
It’s a legal requirement to self isolate when you arrive in the UK from a non-exempt country, territory or region. If you’re contacted by the enforcement authorities or the police after you have received this negative result please show them this notification.
