Patients seeking coronavirus test must have at least two symptoms

38

New legislation states that anyone seeking a coronavirus test must show at least two symptoms.

As well as this, they must also be in a particular group of people.

This includes if you were in contact with a confirmed case, healthcare workers, prison inmates and staff as well as anyone who works in a long-term care facility.

This measure has been taken as large volumes of people have recently come forward for testing with approximately 20,000 tests a day for the past 10 days.
