Why you can’t use a 3 hour PCR for day 2 testing
Since the announcement that day 2 tests need to be a PCR test from tomorrow, I have been questioned by many of people saying that you can use a 3 hour PCR test as a day 2. I had hoped that they would be acceptable to the government and that companies would start selling them as a day 2 test. However, until they are officially called day 2 tests, you can’t use them for that purpose.
Fortunately, Collinson has officially clarified the situation and as I have said before, the rapid or 3 hour PCR tests can’t be used for day 2 tests at the moment. You can use them for entry into most countries that require a PCR.
The government have set a qualifying criteria for acceptable Day 2 tests, as it stands now Rapid PCR does not qualify in it’s current form and is therefore not yet approved for Day 2 arrival.
