Many negative PCR test results in the South West, 8th Sept – 12th Oct, may have been inaccurate

Summary: Between 8th Sept and 12th October, an estimated 400,000 people, mostly in the South West, have been affected by possibly inaccurate PCR results – perhaps 43,000 people have been falsely told they were negative, and to stop isolating, when they were likely infected. This will include very nearly all of those who tested positive on a Lateral Flow Device. The issues with PCR testing should now have been resolved – some people (tested between 3rd and 12th October) are being asked to isolate and take another PCR.
We are updating this page as we get better information – this is clearly now a national media story. We have kept older information in the page below as a record.

If you’ve got a positive LFT and are either ill or have been in contact with other people who have tested positive (inc. on LFT), it’s likely it is Covid. It’s good to stay home and avoid passing on other illness, even if what you have isn’t Covid-19! If a school or other setting is telling you to attend but you don’t think it makes sense (ie, if you’ve had a negative PCR but have symptoms or are a contact of a case and have a positive LFT), contact the Glos County Council team via Healthprotection@gloucestershire.gov.uk (two examples of updated local secondary school advice below)
