Up to one in three people who have COVID-19 can spread the virus without knowing. This is because they have no symptoms. To reduce the spread of the virus, we need to identify those individuals. We can do this in schools by carrying out tests at home twice every week, 3-4 days apart.
The Government has stated that all secondary and college aged students will be offered tests to make North Bromsgrove High School safer for everyone.
Tests are free of charge. Students will receive a pack of 3 or 6 tests in a box with a leaflet on how to take the test and report the results.
There is no need to keep used test equipment after the test result has been reported. You can put it in your normal bin (household waste).
This does not replace symptomatic testing. If you have symptoms, you should self- isolate immediately, book a PCR test and follow national guidelines.
You need to report your result to both NHS Test and Trace and School.
You should order a confirmatory PCR test if you are testing at home.
A negative result does not guarantee that you are not carrying the virus. So, you should continue to follow social distancing, and other measures to reduce transmission such as wearing a face mask and regularly washing your hands and observing social distancing.
If you or anyone in your household gets symptoms of the virus you should follow national guidelines on self-isolation and testing. You need to report each test result
