Types of test for COVID-19

Whether or not you have symptoms, getting tested will help us stop the spread of COVID-19 in Sutton. 

There are two types of test available in Sutton.

  1. Tests for people with symptoms (also called PCR tests)

  2. Tests for people without symptoms, but who may be carrying and spreading the virus without realising


Self isolation

If you receive a positive test result you and the rest of your household will need to self-isolate for 10 days. 

There is support available to help you do this, including a self-isolation support payment for those on a low income who will lose their income while they self-isolate.


NHS Test and Trace (contact tracing)

Following a positive test result, you will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace and will need you to share information about recent interactions.


Guidance for businesses

Businesses permitted to open, must follow the national guidance on Test and Trace.
