Dear parents and carers,
We are writing in relation to the recent statement that came out from the Welsh Government who are changing their guidance about household contacts. From Monday 11th October, the Welsh Government are advising that if anyone in your household tests positive for Covid-19, as well as undertaking PCR testing on day 2 and day 8, that young people should also use the Lateral Flow Devices to test every day for 7 days. This should start on the day a household contact is confirmed as positive from either a lateral flow device or a PCR test result.
Lateral flow device testing kits continue to be available through school for the routine twice weekly testing. Should anyone require further test kits for the purposes of testing due to being a household contact, please contact your year team.
Further information about this can be found on the following link:
