Coronavirus: Got symptoms? Get tested

Main symptoms of coronavirus:

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

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

  • get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible
  • stay at home and don’t have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test

Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.

You can book a test for yourself or a child online at or by calling 119.

If you need help with your results call 0300 303 2713.

If you cannot book a national test immediately, please try again at a later time as the system is currently very busy and your patience is appreciated.

If you cannot book a test please do not go to your GP or hospital emergency department.

In Cornwall, we have access to 4 mobile testing units which usually operate from Falmouth, Launceston, St Austell, Bude or Camborne. Please check and book a slot before you attend. You will need to have a QR code to attend. Go to to book your slot.

If you are a parent or carer and unable to book a local slot email explaining that the test is for a child attending a Cornwall school and they will be supported to access local testing.

Please continue to isolate until you have your test result and follow guidance.

Stay alert. Control the virus. Save lives.
