Testing – COVID-19

        If you have symptoms

        If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. You and anyone you live with should stay at home and not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test. Anyone in your support bubble should also stay at home if you have been in close contact with them since your symptoms started or during the 48 hours before they started. You must book an appointment slot.
        There are two test sites in Thanet:

        • Drive-through Testing Site – Ramsgate (Manston Airport)
        • Walk-through Testing Site – Margate (Dreamland Car Park)

        If you have no symptoms

        Rapid lateral flow tests are available to collect from community pharmacies. Find your nearest pharmacy.

        Asymptomatic testing (for those with no symptoms of coronavirus) is also available at one test site in Thanet. You must book an appointment slot.
