Lateral Flow Testing

Welsh Government believe that rapid testing using Lateral Flow tests will support the return to face-to-face learning by helping to detect infection. Testing remains voluntary but is strongly encouraged. It will mean we will not have to send large groups of children home. 

Please note that if you do opt out of the testing process, you should be aware that in the event of a positive test in your child’s contact group, your child will be required to stay at home for the usual 10 day isolation period.
