How the Test to Release Scheme Works

If you arrive in England from somewhere outside of the UK, Ireland, the Channel Islands, or the Isle of Man, current government legislation states that you must quarantine for 10 days upon arrival.

Under the Test to Release Scheme, you can choose to pay for a private COVID-19 test, whereby you can end your quarantine early if it comes back negative. However, you cannot take a test until after you have been in England for 5 days.
