Lateral flow home testing

Lateral Flow Device results

If you have taken a lateral flow device test as directed by 111 or Contact Tracing, or as part of the Isle of Man’s voluntary screening for COVID-19, please report your test result using the below ‘Lateral Flow Result Notification’ form.

Lateral Flow Result Notification form >>

If your test outcome is positive please isolate, complete the form and telephone 111 to arrange a follow-up PCR test.

Home testing kits

If you have been encouraged by contact tracing as a close contact to take part in a free-seven day home testing scheme, you can collect your Home test kits – called lateral flow devices –from participating pharmacies. Please check the pharmacies list below to see which pharmacy closest to you is offering this collection service.

If you are doing the home testing course you will be encouraged to take a test every day for seven days from when you are identified as a close contact. An anonymous online reporting system is available for people to confirm their negative results.

If you return a positive home test result, or develop symptoms, you should immediately isolate and call 111 and will be offered a PCR test if necessary. If the PCR test comes back as positive, you will have to self-isolate for 10 days.

Whilst there will be no legal restrictions on close contacts, you should consider:

  • Telling your employer that you have been identified as a close contact and letting them know if you’ll be undertaking daily home testing
  • Telling friends, family and colleagues who may feel anxious or vulnerable
  • Thinking about who you interact with in the 10 days after being told you’re a close contact
  • Taking precautions that may make you and others feel safer, such as minimising face to face close contact, avoiding confined and poorly ventilated areas or wearing a face covering as appropriate.
