  • Information

      Shorten your quarantine period by taking the in-clinic Day 5 Test to Release in Reading.

      Per the ‘traffic light’ travel system, if you come back to England from an ‘amber list’ country, you must quarantine for ten days and take PCR tests on Day 2 and Day 8.

      However, you may be able to have your quarantine period reduced by as little as only five days. All you have to do is opt in to the government’s Test to Release scheme.

      The Test to Release scheme allows you to take an additional PCR test on or after Day 5 of your arrival. If you test negative, you can conclude the quarantine early.

      This scheme can only be used by people returning from ‘amber list’ countries and self-isolating in England. Opting in for the Day 5 test is entirely voluntary.

  • When will I receive my results?

      We offer a next-day results service at our Reading clinic for £125.

      Your results will be sent to you via email.

  • How can I opt into the Test to Release scheme?

      You have to select on your passenger locator form that you are opting in to the Test to Release scheme and include details of your Day 5 test appointment. However, before you fill in the form, it is vital that you book the Day 5 PCR test.

      You must book the test and fill the passenger locator form before departing for England. You will be required to show the completed form to the UK Border Police on arrival in the UK.

  • Can I travel to your Reading clinic if I am self-isolating?

      You can travel to our clinic for your PCR test, no problem. As long as you have pre-booked appointment with us, you will be able to attend your PCR test even during your self-isolation period.

      In case you have reason to suspect you may be infected or have been in close contact with an infected individual, please take our at-home test.

  • How does the Test to Release PCR test work?

      The PCR test used for the scheme is the standard one. Swab samples will be taken from your nose and throat and tested in a lab to find COVID-19 RNA.

  • What if I test negative?

      According to the Test to Release scheme’s rule, your quarantine will cease immediately after you receive a negative on the Day 5 test. You must still take the Day 8 PCR test.

  • What if I test positive?

      You will not be allowed to leave quarantine early. In fact, you will be required to restart your self-isolation period from one day after you had taken the test. The new quarantine period must last at least ten days.

  • What if my test result is inconclusive?

      In such cases, you may choose to book a retest. However, you must complete your initial quarantine period until you can obtain a conclusive negative result.

  • Can I take part in the scheme after I arrive in England?

      As discussed in a previous section, you must book your Day 5 test and confirm your participation in the scheme on your passenger locator form before coming to England. Therefore, you cannot.

  • Can I take part in the scheme if I am travelling from a country on the travel ban red list?

      If you arrive in England from a ‘red list’ country, you will not be eligible to take part in the Test to Release scheme. You must complete the ten-day mandatory quarantine period.
