Covid 19 Lateral Flow Test Reminder

We hope you have had a great half term break and we are looking forward to seeing you back in college next week.

Please keep an eye on our website for further Coronavirus updates. We continue to follow all guidance from the Department of Education and Public Health England.

In an effort to stay on top of the virus, please can we remind you to carry out a Covid 19 lateral flow test before you return to college. We are also still asking you to take two lateral flow tests a week.If your Covid 19 test returns a positive result you’ll need to self-isolate immediately and order a PCR test. If a close contact tests positive for coronavirus, and you are fully vaccinated or under 18 years old, you will not need to self-isolate. Instead, you’ll be advised to take a PCR test. If this test is positive you must then self-isolate. NHS Test and Trace will then work to help identify your close contacts who will follow the same procedure.

Tests are voluntary but we are asking for everyone’s support to help beat the virus together.

We are still supplying home test kits in college. Please ask your Tutor or go to the LRC where the staff can supply you with more kits.

Thanks for your support!
