Mandatory international arrivals testing
Mandatory Day 2 & Day 8 surveillance testing is available from Mayfield Clinic as a package for arrivals back to the UK. Tests are dispatched to you by post or can be collected from Mayfield Clinic. We also provide a GP-led testing service.
Test To Release can be used to end quarantine on Day 5, upon receipt of a negative result. Otherwise, you will need to wait until Day 10 and until you've received negative results from both your Day 2 and Day 8 mandatory tests.

If you test positive for either Day 2 or Day 8 test you must quarantine for a further 10 days from the day you took the test – you will receive further advice alongside your test results. Positive day 2 tests are sent for genomic sequencing to check the strain of the virus the patient is carrying. If your test shows that you have a variant of coronavirus known as a ‘variant of concern’, you will get a further call and your contacts will be asked to be tested.
Once you’ve quarantined for 10 days and received a negative result to both your day 2 and day 8 tests, you may leave the place where you’re quarantining. The only way to shorten this period, is by taking a 'Test To Release' test on or after Day 5
Return your Test To Release kit to us on Day 5 (where Day 0 is the day you arrive back into the UK) before 3PM, and upon receipt of a negative result you can exit travel isolation / quarantine. You are still required to submit the Day 8 test.
