Secondary schools have been approved for serial testing alongside self-isolation as a strategy, however, some questions have been raised about where and when this should be applied. The local Public Health team will support secondary school leaders to determine a strategy that is appropriate to the context on a case by case basis.
For schools participating in the mass asymptomatic lateral flow testing, it is important that you take action on the basis of a positive LFT result. Please contact public health in the first instance for advice and to conduct the risk assessment and contact tracing.
To contact public health, please email email@example.com. The incident room is staffed 7 days a week, including evenings and weekends.
