Positive test result - Day 2 and Day 8 testing
Your coronavirus test result is positive. You had the virus when this test was taken.
Even if you have not had symptoms of coronavirus, you must self isolate for 10 days from the day after your test date. Your test sample may be genome sequenced to check whether you have a virus variant of concern.
People you live with or are travelling with should also self isolate for 10 days from the day after you took a test.
If you received a positive test result for the test taken on or before day 2, you do not need to take the day 8 test. People you are travelling with must still take a day 8 test.
You may be contacted for contact tracing and to check that you, and those who you live or are travelling with, are self isolating.
You must not travel, including to leave the UK, during self isolation.
Contact 111 if you need medical help. In an emergency dial 999.
