COVID-19 Home Testing for Students
The asymptomatic testing of students on return to school has been a great success. Students have shown courage during the testing and they should be praised for their adaptability to the process. We are now in a position to issue all students who have completed 3 tests in our testing centre with home test kits. The home testing kits are easy to use. They contain the same Lateral Flow Device (LFD) and use the same swabbing technique as the students have completed in our testing centre. The LFD will provide a result (negative, void or positive) in 30 minutes. Full details on the LFD kits, the testing and reporting process, along with 'Frequently Asked Questions' can be found in this letter.
In order to minimise the spread of the virus, and keep everyone in the community as safe as possible, all tests issued by Pembroke must be reported twice: once to the NHS and once to The Priory Trust.
