Testing

If you are self isolating due to having symptoms of COVID-19 you can arrange to be tested at one of the regional test centres or using a home test kit.  Further information can be found in the FAQs below. 

For non-key workers you can use this self help guide: access to testing for coronavirus on NHS Inform to help you select and book the right test.

Key workers and members of their household have priority access for testing.  If you are a key worker and you or a member of your household are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 you should contact your line manager immediately to arrange testing.  Managers can refer key workers to the National Employer Referral Portal by completing key worker details on the spreadsheet below and submit to hrpolicy@westlothian.gov.uk by 12 noon.
