PHA Advise on Testing for Covid-19 – Updated 21/5/2020

Everyone over five years of age in Northern Ireland with symptoms of coronavirus is now eligible for testing.

You can now get tested if you have:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature); OR
  • 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); OR
  • a loss of or change in sense of smell or taste.
