If your RAT result is positive, you will not be issued a Certified Proof of COVID-19 Test Result. Instead you will be required to follow current isolation rules. Your travel will need to be postponed until the required isolation and wait period is over. You will need to also record your positive result to your My COVID Record or call 0800 222 478 and press 3 to report.
If your PCR test result is positive this may be a result of a previous infection. In these cases we suggest a consult with the doctor as a Medical Clearance Certificate may be appropriate.
Most people with COVID-19 will experience mild or medium symptoms and be able to successfully manage their illness themselves.
If you get a positive result, we have plenty of tips and guidelines for Self-Managing Covid-19 at Home and your GP in The Doctors network also has access to the Covid Care for telehealth services while you are managing at home.
