People who test positive on lateral flow tests ‘won’t need a follow-up PCR’

The Metro says The rules for Covid-19 testing are set to change imminently with people who are positive on a lateral flow test no longer needing a follow-up PCR, it is understood.

The relaxation of the measure will reportedly be announced by the Government today as a way of helping cut isolation periods and prevent staff shortages.

Currently, people who test positive on a lateral flow are required to confirm their results with a follow-up gold-standard PCR check.
