How does Test-to-Release work?

If you are not vaccinated and you arrive in England from non-red list country, you might be able to end your 10-day quarantine early using the Test-to-Release scheme. Find out how it works on GOV.UK.

  1. You cannot use the scheme if you are returning from a travel ban red list country.
  2. Buy and take a Day 2 and Day 8 travel test package.
  3. You ALSO test on Day 5 – this is the test we provide.
  4. If your Day 5 result is negative, you can end quarantine early.

Rules change regularly, so be sure to check GOV.UK.
