  3. Day 5 (Test to Release)

When will my Day 5 (Test to Release) results be ready, and how long does it take?

It usually takes 24 hours to return your sample to us, and a further 24-36 hours for our labs to process it and notify you of your result. It can take longer if this process crosses a weekend, when most postal services are not operating.

Test To Release is always scheduled for delivery to you on Day 5 of your self-isolation period. You should allow at least 48 hours for your result before you can end your self-isolation period (if your test is negative).
