If your child has COVID-19 symptoms, keep home from school. Dial 119 or use www.gov.uk/coronavirus for a COVID test. Self-isolate until you have the results.
If no test is possible, isolate as per government guidelines. GPs/A&E can’t provide COVID testing or a letter to allow return to school.
There is a national issue with testing due to lab capacity to process tests. This means that there is currently a limit on the amount of tests taking place at all testing sites and with home testing as well. We therefore need to prioritise those who need tests, only people with Covid-19 symptoms (fever, new cough, loss or change in taste/smell) should be booking a test.
