What is Test to Release?
The Test to Release Scheme offers you the opportunity to pay for a private Covid-19 test, 5 full days after your return from abroad. If your test comes back negative, you are able to leave isolation. However, if you test positive, you are required to isolate for a further 10 days. This should be calculated from the day you took the test, or from when you first displayed symptoms, whichever occurred first. Moreover, any people you are living or staying with in the UK should also isolate for 10 days from this date. You can find further guidance regarding isolation on the Government website.
