When should I get my tests done?

I went for an ultrasound in January and they discovered one of my kidneys is smaller than normal.

They recommended that I get a couple of tests done once a year and my doctor surgery sent me a letter confirming this.

My appointment was due just when the virus became widespread in March so it got cancelled but I've just started thinking about it after a family member had tests done.

Should I wait until next March (they told me at the time to get the tests done every March) and skip this year's tests, or should I go sooner?

No, I'd schedule it right now.  Who knows if we'll have another shut down coming so get it checked now.  And doctor's offices are careful so don't fear covid.
