Weekly statistics

PCR (polymerase chain reaction) testing

PCR tests are the 'swab' tests that have been offered since March.

These tests are sent off to a laboratory for processing.

You receive your test result within 2 to 5 working days, by text or a phone call.

The PCR tests are better at finding very small amounts of the virus, especially early in infection, so these are primarily used to test people with symptoms.

You can book a PCR test online or call 119.
