Community Testing – How to get tested

The way you get tested for coronavirus in Scotland depends on whether you are showing symptoms for Covid

Do you have any of the following symptoms?

  • A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
  • Select NO if you wish to order a free Lateral Flow Home Test Kit, for example because you are travelling to a Scottish Island
