Stay Safe Sheffield Coronavirus update graphic

Testing is a vital part in our fight against the spread of Covid-19 and to help reduce the rate of people contracting the virus, we need your help.

You can get a test at one of six testing centres by booking an appointment in advance. 

If you are showing any of the following symptoms of Covid-19, however mild, you need to get tested as soon as you can:

  • A high temperature
  • A new, continuous cough
  • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

You should only book a test if you have symptoms of Covid-19. If you have coronavirus symptoms, you need to get a test done within the first 5 days of having symptoms. If you have symptoms you must also self-isolate at home and only leave your home to get a test.

If you have symptoms call 119 or follow the testing information on the NHS website www.nhs.uk/coronavirus to arrange a test. 

When you book your test you will be given a test site address, date and time.

Please DO NOT attend at any other site other than your allocated test centre as you will be turned away to go to the location listed on your test booking. 

You can only have a test at a test centre if you have booked an appointment. Please do not attend a site unless you have booked a test as you will be turned away and asked to book an appointment.  

If you cannot get an appointment right away, stay at home and  self-isolate until an appointment becomes available.
