Update on waiting rooms

Following the successful reopening of 28 waiting rooms across Great Britain we will be opening a further 93 waiting rooms on Friday 4 December.

The full list of waiting rooms and their status is available on GOV.UK.

National restrictions and local lockdowns

The availability of our waiting rooms will be kept under review in line with any further national or local restrictions.

Waiting room guidance

We have published waiting room guidance on GOV.UK that explains rules for using them.

The number of people allowed in each waiting room will depend on its size and the maximum number will be shown on a sign on the door.

If your local waiting room has not been opened

We understand that you may be disappointed if your local test centre waiting room remains closed. The safety of our customers and staff is our top priority. We are working to safely open up other waiting rooms around the country.

We’ll continue to work with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the trade associations and update you again when more of our waiting rooms can be made available safely.
