St Anthony's Outbreak Management Plan for Covid (September 2021)
In line with Government Guidance if you or your child have any of these 3 coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, you must book and have a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test as soon as possible:
· a high temperature
· a new, continuous cough
· you’ve lost your sense of smell or taste or it’s changed
You can order a PCR test kit to be sent to your home or book an appointment at a walk-in or drive-through test site via the following web site https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
If you have symptoms, you and everyone you live with must immediately self-isolate. Do not leave home until you get your test results, except to post a test kit or for a PCR test appointment. Please note rapid lateral flow tests are only for people who do not have symptoms, (they give results in 30 minutes using a devise similar to a pregnancy test). Rapid lateral flow tests should not be used by those showing symptoms and are not recommended for use with children. If a rapid lateral flow tests positive you must immediately self-isolate and book and have a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test as soon as possible.
***In line with guidance, children cannot return to school until they have a negative result from a PCR test. We cannot accept results from lateral flow tests.
Thank you for your continued support in implementing this guidance to help stop the virus spreading.
