Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.
Notify us without delay
If you, your child or anyone in the household has symptoms that could be COVID Get a PCR test. Do NOT use a LFD test.
DON’T Use LFD tests if instructed to self-isolate as a contact of a COVID case – a negative result (either LFD or PCR) will not allow your child to return to Pre-school before the end of the10 day self-isolation period.
A negative LFD home test result only shows a reduced risk of having COVID. A positive LFD home test result still requires a PCR test to confirm.
Most important of all:
If you have symptoms you must self-isolate as soon as they start and ask your household to self-isolate too
Book a test online and stay home while waiting for your appointment or home testing kit to arrive – do not let friends or family visit you
Remain at home until you get a negative test result or the self-isolation period is over – do not leave the house for any reason
If told you are a contact of someone with Covid you must self-isolate for 10 days.
Remember to follow the public health guidelines that we know stop Covid from spreading:
Wash hands or use sanitiser and clean shared surfaces regularly
Wear face coverings
Maintain social distancing of 2 metres
Limit contact between households
Work from home if possible
