My COVID-19 test kit (for research study) has arrived, I've read the instructions and booked the courier pickup.

Why are you being tested?

The UK government are doing a randomised test to see if people in the community have the Coronavirus without knowing it - and I have been randomly selected. I don't have any Coronavirus symptoms. Part of research study with NHS, Imperial College London & Ipsos MORI.

COVID-19 Testing Package

The contents arrived in a largish bubble wrap envelop and contained all that I needed to complete the test - instructions, bar codes, swab tests & bag, return box (flat packed).

My first job was to read the instructions which were detailed (and I guess needed to be). I can only do the test on the day the courier picks it up so I had to book this first - which I duly did. They then send an email to tell me day they will pick up the test - this arrived in my GMail spam folder, and tells me test is tomorrow - so must do it first thing, put in fridge, then wait for courier to pickup tomorrow.

I can only do the test on the day of collection (tomorrow) and wait for the courier to collect it. We'll need to be around all day in the house to wait for a collection - but we're not going anywhere except the garden so that won't be a problem as someone can stay in all day.
