Book tests at gov.uk or call 119. Caremark do not provide tests.
If you're an essential worker who is self-isolating, you can now apply for you and your household to get tested in Herefordshire for Covid-19 coronavirus.
The drive-through testing is available at Merton Meadow car park in Hereford and tests can be booked on the government website. The test is only for people who have symptoms of coronavirus – whether that’s you, or someone you live with. It involves taking a swab sample from your nose and throat. The test will tell whether you currently have coronavirus. After the test, while you wait for your results, you (and anyone you live with) must continue to self-isolate. Read NHS advice about how long to self-isolate.
If your test result turns out to be negative, you can safely return to work, as long as:
you are well enough
you have not had a high temperature for 48 hours
anyone you live with also tests negative
