The Ministry of Health says if you test positive or negative, you should report the results of your rapid antigen test. You can only do this online through My Covid Record or by calling the helpline by calling 0800 222 478 and choosing option 3.

If you test positive for Covid-19 you must self-isolate for seven days while you recover. This includes if you have had Covid-19 before. Day 0 is the day your symptoms started or when you tested positive, whichever came first.
