COVID-19 Testing for Adults

About 1 in 3 people with Covid-19 do not have symptoms but can still pass it on to others.  The government have introduced a new initiative to regularly test people without Covid-19 symptoms, to help stop the virus spreading.

They are making rapid lateral flow testing available for adults (not children) who have primary and secondary aged pupils in their household, childcare or support bubble. This is only to be used for adults who do not have Covid-19 symptoms. Anyone with symptoms must book a test at a Covid-19 testing site or order a home test.

Our staff have been participating in regular rapid lateral flow testing since the end of January.

Below is a link to more information, including how to order the tests.

We would encourage you to seriously consider participating in this testing initiative, to further protect the Devonshire community from the spread of Covid – 19.
