The Government announced at the end of last week that  that due to the sheer size of the Omicron wave, we still need to take steps to ensure our testing capacity reaches those who need it most. So we will be suspending the need to do a PCR test to confirm the result of a positive lateral flow test.

From Tuesday 11th January in England, if you test positive on a lateral flow device, you should just record that result on and begin self-isolating.
