Covid update - LFT tests07/10/21
I would like to draw your attention to the government's reform of the Covid guidelines yesterday. The new guidelines apply to Secondary age pupils. If a member of a pupil's household tests positive for Covid-19, as well as PCR tests on Day 2 and Day 8, it is recommended that the pupil take a lateral flow tests every day for seven days. This should begin on the day when a member of the household received confirmation of either a one-way flow test or a positive PCR. Clearly, if the pupil has any symptoms, a PCR test should be arranged immediately. These guidelines come into effect on Monday, October 11th. Test kits are available to every pupil as long as they have returned the permission slip. Should a pupil require a new box of test, he/she should ask the tutor.
