If you are travelling into the UK you must quarantine for 10 full days. The day you arrive in the UK is classed as Day 0.
By purchasing our Day 5 Test to Release product you can leave self-isolation early ending your isolation 4 days early upon receipt of a negative result.
- The test will be sent to your home quarantine address. The test must be done on Day 5 or after.
- Results and certificate will be sent via email within 24 hours of sample being received by the lab.
- If you perform the test on Day 5 and send using the pre-paid Royal Mail Tracked24 service, you should receive your certificate either late on Day 6 or early on Day 7.
If Day 5 of your home quarantine falls on a Sunday you may not receive your results until Day 8, due to the lack of a Royal Mail delivery service unless your area is serviced by Royal Mail on Saturday/Sunday. This may result in delays in getting your results and therefore lengthen home quarantine.
Please note, purchasing this product does not exempt you from taking the Day 2 and Day 8 Tests. You must still do your Day 8 test in addition to this.
