Government Guidance for Rapid Lateral Flow Testing for Households and bubbles of school pupils and staff
Members of households, childcare or support bubbles of primary pupils are now also eligible for these tests. LFT tests are for the adults in these bubbles, there are currently no plans to routinely test primary age children.
If you’re a member of a household, childcare bubble or support bubble of a school pupil, you can get twice-weekly symptom-free tests. The symptom-free tests for households are not available from schools. Households can use any testing offered by their employer, or book an appointment online at a symptom-free testing site, or collect a home-testing kit from a designated collection point, or if unable to travel to a site, order a kit online. You can find out more on the government website here.
