Lateral Flow Testing available for families

The Government have announced that to support the wider opening of schools, lateral flow device (LFD) testing is now available for households, childcare and support bubbles of primary and secondary-age pupils . LFD tests can be carried out at home and kits can be collected from local testing sites in Manchester. More information can be found online using the following link: Rapid lateral flow testing for households and bubbles of school pupils and staff  This link also includes information about ordering kits on line in exceptional circumstances.

Summary of the main guidance:

The main symptoms to be concerned about are still:

new continuous cough

and/or

high temperature.

Loss of sense of tast or smell

If you or someone in your household becomes unwell  with the above symptoms THEY should have a test (dial 119 or book online at gov.uk) and must stay at home for 10 days. After10 days, if better and they no longer have a temperature, they can return to school/work. 

The remainder of the household should stay at home for 14 days from the first day of symptoms OR 10 days from becoming unwell themselves, if that is sooner. They can then return to work/school.

** The cough may persist beyond 10 days but this on its own is not a reason to stay at home.
