This week as a school staff team, we started doing the Covid Lateral Flow Tests (LFD) at home, thanks to our NHS families and senior school parents who told us that they are not pleasant, we can now completely agree! The reason for school staff to be taking the tests is to try to successfully detect COVID-19 in asymptomatic individuals. Lateral flow tests are designed to detect the level of virus in individuals who do not experience and show any symptoms, but who could still be infectious and pass the virus to others. By taking a test, we are helping to stop the spread of the virus and protect others. From our first ‘run’ on Wednesday all of us were negative. May this continue!
