What is a COVID-19 PCR test?

PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction. This is a test designed and used to directly detect the presence of the genetic material/antigens of the COVID-19 virus rather than the presence of the body’s immune response, or antibodies. This is only possible if the virus is present and someone is actively infected. The tests can tell whether or not someone has the virus very early on by detecting viral RNA (ribonucleic acid). RNA is present in the body before antibodies form or symptoms of the disease are present. PCR tests give us a good indication of who is infected and who is not.

Who should have COVID Fit to Fly Travel Test Certificates in Clapham, London?

The COVID Fit to Fly Travel Test Certificates are for people of all ages that are planning a holiday or need to travel abroad for various reasons. Most travellers are now required to have a certificate and/or document to prove to airlines and countries they are visiting that they do not have an active COVID-19 infection.

These people should follow all government guidance regarding self-isolation and testing.

As regulations might differ, depending on the destination or airline, please make sure that you check for the most up-to-date travel information. You can do this by speaking to your airline directly or by simply visiting the Foreign Office website. This is where more details and guidance can be found.
