From Tuesday 11 January, people without COVID-19 symptoms who get a positive result on a rapid response LFT will not be required to take a confirmatory PCR test.
If you get a positive result on an LFT you should report your result on gov.uk. You will still need to self-isolate immediately. After reporting a positive LFT test result, you will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace so that your contacts can be traced and must continue to self-isolate.
This is a temporary measure. With high levels across the UK, the vast majority of people with positive LFT results can be confident that they have COVID-19.
