The NHS test and trace service – be aware of scams

The NHS test and trace service is free of charge, and:

  • ensures that anyone who develops symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) can quickly be tested to find out if they have the virus
  • helps trace close recent contacts of anyone who tests positive for coronavirus and, if necessary, notifies them that they must self-isolate at home to help stop the spread of the virus

So, the NHS will get in touch with you if:

  • you have tested positive, or
  • you have been in contact with a proven positive case
