Covid-19 Lateral Flow Testing

We are following advice from the DfE and PHE for twice weekly testing of staff in secondary schools.

"Rapid testing remains a vital part of our plan to suppress this virus. The use of rapid lateral flow tests is already proving beneficial in finding people with coronavirus (COVID-19) before they develop symptoms. We will therefore also be encouraging schools and colleges to increase regular testing of staff to twice weekly as further reassurance and to break chains of transmission during this period. Our guidance for secondary schools and colleges will be updated shortly.

Secondary schools are only expected to test students twice upon their return to school."
