PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

To help keep everyone safe, rapid testing is taking place on secondary school and college sites to help identify pupils and staff with COVID-19 who don’t have symptoms but are still infectious. This will help prevent further spread of infection.

Pupils will be offered three rapid lateral flow tests, three to five days apart– and will then be given kits to regularly test themselves at home.

Parents and carers of primary and secondary school or college-age children can also get free rapid tests or pick up a home test kit – as can people who need to leave home for work, or care or volunteering responsibilities.
