Lateral Flow Home Testing Information
Letter from Cumbria County Council – June 2021
Parents letter to continue twice weekly testing over the May half-term
Thank you for your continued support with Covid-19 home testing. Your child should continue testing and reporting results twice a week, at home, throughout the May half-term school holiday and take a test before returning to school.
Recording all test results helps scientists stay ahead of the virus by spotting new outbreaks quickly and advising how to respond. Reporting results is easy.
Go to: Report a COVID-19 rapid lateral flow test result – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) Or call: 119 free from a mobile or landline. Lines are open every day, 7am to 11pm. Support is offered in 200 languages as well as British Sign Language and Live Video Assistance.
All results should be reported, even if your child’s result is negative or void.
You should also keep a note of and share your child’s results with school if they test positive, via the school office, or during the holidays via our emergency mobile 07858 328848 as soon as possible after the positive test. Either text or call and we will get back to you with further advice.
The government is encouraging all adults to participate in twice weekly testing to help stop the spread of coronavirus. You can order tests through the Order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests service.
Up to one in three people who have COVID-19 have no symptoms and could be spreading it without knowing. Maintaining a regular habit of testing twice a week, 3-4 days apart, will help stop the virus spreading and keep schools and colleges open to students and staff.
