COVID-19 Rapid Testing in Schools

To safeguard the health of the school workforce and keep as many staff and pupils in school as possible, the government have made rapid-result coronavirus (COVID-19) tests available to schools.

This will help identify asymptomatic cases, which make up a third of all cases, helping to limit the spread of the virus.

Testing, along with other infection prevention and control measures such as social distancing, can ensure pupils are given the best chance of face to face education.
