With these symptoms, you qualify for testing for COVID-19.

Please call NHS helpline 111; and they will guide you how to get tested in your case.

There are home kits available, drive through areas, and centres close to your vicinity; you can get tested in any of these areas but take the suggestion of helpline or alternatively call your GP surgery.
