Myself and DH went for tests on Thursday, website says 48 hours. Will it take longer due to the bank holiday?

I'm desperate to get back to work Monday if I can.

How long has everyone else's taken to get back?

Thanks smile

@BammBamm just curious as to what part of the country you are and whether that may make a difference to timescales?

I'm on day 6 now. Tested at 9 am on Sunday 3rd. When I phoned the helpline they said the timescale had moved to 7-10 days.

I'm also on day 6 waiting.

I'm relieved that someone else is still waiting.

Of the people I know:
Residents and staff in care home, so key workers, tested over a week ago, told 10 days as not a priority.
Relative who is also a key worker, tested 7 days ago today, told up to 10 days as not a priority.

Seems to be a theme.
