Anyone, including children, with symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, new continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste) can get tested to check if they have the virus. You should do this immediately and shouldn’t leave home except to get a confirmatory PCR test. PCR home test kits are available to order online and arrive by post. Visit Gov.UK to find out how to ask for a test.
Testing at a regional test site is booked online and home testing kits are available if needed. In Portsmouth the testing site is in the outdoor area of 315 Commercial Road, PO1 4BU (former Sainsbury’s car park). To get tested at this site you’ll need to book a test through the NHS website or Government website
If you test positive for coronavirus you will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace to help identify people you’ve been in close contact with. Find out more on the NHS website. You can also find information on the NHS website about what to do if you’re contacted by the NHS Test and Trace service as you’ve been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus.
