Find out how to book a coronavirus (covid-19) test if you have symptoms.

If you do not have symptoms you can still get a test. Find out more on our get a coronavirus test if you don't have symptoms page.

Before you attend you must book a test. Tests can be booked from 8pm the night before. If test sites are fully booked they will not appear on the government's website. 

Anyone who is showing coronavirus symptoms is eligible to book a test to find out if they have the virus. You can also book a test if you are self-isolating after being in contact with someone who has tested positive. 

Book a test

People who don't have access to the internet, or who have difficulty with the digital portals, can ring the 119 service to book their test.

Testing locations

Testing sites in North Yorkshire, as elsewhere in England, are operated and managed by the Department of Health and Social Care and private contractors employed by them. We try to help the Department by promoting the Mobile Testing Site locations and hosting information on how people with symptoms can book a test via the national government portal. We do not manage the national booking system or laboratory testing process.
