COVID-19 Briefing

Rapid lateral flow testing for households and bubbles of school

 

As more pupils and students return to the classroom the Government has asked that all adults

who live in households with primary school, secondary school and college age children, including

childcare and support bubbles, test themselves twice a week. Many parents will have received a

letter from their school asking them to access regular testing.

Around 1 in 3 people with Covid-19 don’t have any symptoms, but can still pass it on. The aim of

the rapid testing is to test as many people as possible to help stop the spread of infections –

especially as places, such as schools, start to reopen.

To support this, home testing kits (a rapid lateral flow device test) are now available for anyone

who is over the age of 18 who lives in the same home as a primary school, secondary school or

college age student.

People who are asymptomatic (do not display symptoms of Covid-19) can find out how to get a

rapid lateral flow test by visiting:
