Who should test for COVID-19?

Who should test for COVID-19?

People who are eligible for COVID-19 treatments should take an LFD test if they have symptoms of a respiratory infection.

If an outbreak is confirmed, care homes should commence outbreak management testing (using LFD test kits):

  • Testing the first 5 linked resident cases with symptoms of a respiratory infection regardless of their eligibility for COVID-19 treatments
  • Subsequently only testing residents with symptoms of a respiratory infection who are eligible for COVID-19 treatments thereafter
  • The outbreak can be declared over, 5 days after the date of the last case
