Free, regular, symptom-free, rapid home testing
Our school is participating in the workforce rapid testing programme. All testing takes place at home and participation is voluntary. Testing is for staff only; primary age pupils are not being tested at present.
Local councils are now offering rapid lateral flow tests which are the new type of COVID-19 test to people who do not have symptoms. Around 1 in 3 people have coronavirus without displaying any symptoms, therefore regular testing for people with no symptoms will help find positive cases earlier and help break the chain of transmission.
These tests are free and the results are given 30 minutes after taking the testFurther information about symptom-free testing in Oxfordshire can be found at Symptom-free testing | Oxfordshire County Council
