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)

        If you have no symptoms

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

        Rapid lateral flow tests can asp be ordered online. A pack contains 7 tests and you can order one pack per household each day. You also need to regster the results of your home test – even if it is negative.

        If you take a test and it comes back positive, even if you have no symptoms, you must self isolate and book a PCR test.
