Advice for education settings
Education settings within the targeted testing areas will be contacted directly. Please encourage all staff, pupils and parents to test.
Please also continue to test using your usual lateral flow testing processes (your symptom-free test provided by the Department for Education).
Any staff that develop COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, must self-isolate and book a standard COVID-19 test through the NHS, via the NHS COVID-19 App online or by calling 119.
COVID-19 symptoms include:
- a high temperature
- continuous cough
- loss or change to smell or taste
They should not attempt to take a symptom-free test.
