If you’re planning to use the Test to Release scheme for Day 5 testing for early release from your quarantine, you must still take a government approved test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8, unless you’re exempt. SYNLAB cannot currently offer the Day 2 or Day 8 testing due to government guidelines, please visit Quarantine Booking (ctmportal.co.uk) for advise on this.
Please note even if you get a negative result from your Test to Release and are released from self-isolation, you still need to take a government test on or after day 8 to check that you do not have COVID-19.
If you still wish to proceed with ordering (and pay for) an additional test at day 5 through the Test to Release scheme, please send all Test to Release enquiries to [email protected].
