CORONAVIRUS testing rules for people without symptoms are set to be eased from next week.

New guidance states anyone in the country who receives a positive lateral flow test - where results are given within 30 minutes without the need of a lab - should report their result on the government website and immediately self-isolate.

Previously people would have to take a follow-up PCR test - but from Tuesday this will no longer be the case.

If you test positive for the virus you will be able to leave self-isolation seven days after the date of their initial positive test if they get two negative lateral flow test results, 24 hours apart, on days six and seven.

More information can be found on the government website.
