Letter from the Secretaries of State for Education and Health (October 2021)

 

The Secretary of State for Education and the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care have written a joint letter to parents/carers about the vaccination of children aged 12 to 15 and the importance of continuing with twice-weekly COVID-19 testing and reporting.

 

The letter provides information on COVID-19 testing and advises that, in response to potential outbreaks, local health teams may advise additional testing and isolation protocols at your school or college. For example, if a student or pupil is identified as a close contact by NHS Test and Trace, they may be asked to take daily lateral flow device (LFD) tests, while they wait for their PCR test result. In this scenario, they should continue to attend school or college as long as their LFD test results remain negative. Alongside the letter are some frequently answered questions for parents/carers, from Dr Mary Ramsay, Head of Immunisation.
