Did you know families of school aged children are entitled to free lateral flow tests?
You can use these tests to check for COVID-19 in your family. School staff will be testing themselves twice a week so it will be really good if our families can also check so that we can keep everyone safe and avoid bubble closures. You do not have to be symptomatic to use these tests.
You can collect Lateral Flow COVID-19 tests for your family any day 1.30pm-7.30pm from the testing centre - Car park, St Paul’s Road, Smethwick, B66 1EG. Click the link here to find out more.
IMPORTANT: The lateral flow test kits are NOT for people with the three main Covid-19 symptoms (high temperature, a new continous cough or a change or loss of sense of taste or smell). If you have these symptoms you must self-isolate and book an NHS (PCR) test.
