Covid-19 tests will still be prioritised for patients. The government has announced that they also intend to make testing available to people who are showing coronavirus symptoms and who can’t work from home, including construction workers. Essential workers and people over the age of 65 should also be able to take part in the testing scheme.
The coronavirus testing rules will apply differently between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
