Changes to the PCR testing system

Eluned Morgan MS, the Minister for Health and Social Services, has published a written statement about changes to the testing system in Wales.
  • The first change will mean that people who are un-vaccinated contacts of positive cases and are self-isolating for 10 days should now take a lateral flow test on day two and day eight instead of a PCR test. This change will come into effect immediately.
