"If a lateral flow test is positive you must self-isolate immediately and book a confirmatory PCR test on GOV.UK or by calling 119.

"It is very important that anyone who has the virus, or might have been exposed to it, avoids all social interaction for 10 days, as this will help stop the spread of coronavirus.

"By self-isolating when required, you are helping to protect others around you, reducing transmission and saving lives."
