How does the test to release work?

  • The Government “test-to-release” scheme is designed to release travellers from post-travel quarantine safely and speedily, 5 days after arrival in to England.
  • You will be able to reduce your self-isolation period from 10 days to just 5 days, provided that you test negative.
  • You arrive in England on Monday. Tuesday will be your first full day of quarantine. You can take a test no earlier than the 5th day after arrival in England – Saturday. You must continue to quarantine while you await your test result.
  • If you test negative: – If the test result is negative you can stop quarantine as soon as you receive the result. (You still need to take the coronavirus test on or after day 8.)
  • If you test positive for COVID-19: – If the test is positive you need to quarantine for another 10 days. Count the 10 days starting from the day after you took the test, or from when you first had symptoms if that is earlier. (You do not need to take the coronavirus test on or after day 8.)
