What is a PCR Test?
PCR tests diagnose people with an active COVID-19 infection. In other words, those currently infected with SARS-COV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
PCR tests detect the virus’ genetic material – specifically RNA fragments – and are used to diagnose a current infection that may not be presenting symptoms yet. PCR tests give us a good indication of who is infected and who is not.
Why do I need a PCR Test?
The COVID-19 PCR tests are for people of all ages who are planning a holiday or need to travel abroad. Most travellers are required to have a certificate to prove to airlines and countries that they do not have an active COVID-19 infection.
People looking to travel to countries outside of the “air bridge” agreement with the UK, may have proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test requested within a certain number of days upon arrival.
Regulations differ depending on the destination or airline. Check for the most up-to-date travel information by speaking to your airline directly.
Which package is right for you?
There are different packages to suit your situation.
Does your airline require a small time window? Do you only need a test without a doctor’s certificate? Whatever your need, there’s a package to suit you.
Things to consider when choosing your package:
- The time window required by your airline and destination
- The day of the week your flight is departing
- Whether or not a fit to fly certificate is required in addition to your Covid-19 PCR test
There are a few important things to know before purchasing a PCR test.
The airline or the country you visit have their own rules for time windows. For example, a 96-hour time window means that your swab needs to be taken within 96 hours (or 4 days) of your flight.
Time windows (especially 48 and 72 hours) can be tight. It’s important that you follow the instructions and select the correct package. If you have a flight departing on a Tuesday or Wednesday with a 72-hour or less time window, it’s better to collect your PCR Test from Beech Road Pharmacy and deliver it to the nearby lab yourself.
Fit to Fly certificate for pregnancy
Planning to fly when pregnant? Some airlines may not allow you to fly if you’re 36 weeks pregnant – or if you are carrying twins and are in your 32nd week of pregnancy – even with a fit to fly certificate. This is because of the risk of going into early labour or having a blood clot. Please check the policy of the airline you’re flying with.
Should I get a PCR Test if I have symptoms?
The test isn’t suitable for those who have COVID-19 symptoms or for those who have had symptoms up to 28 days prior to the test. These people should follow all government guidance regarding self-isolation and testing.
What happens if I test positive?
You won’t get a Fit to Fly certificate for positive COVID-19 results. Follow government guidelines for testing positive for COVID-19.
Can I get a refund if my test is positive for COVID-19?
There are no refunds on any tests, sorry. Please ensure you follow the test kit instructions carefully.
