COVID 19 Guidance

Last updated 1st July 2022

What are the symptoms of COVID 19?

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

If you have any of these symtoms you must book a PCR test.

Where can I book a PCR test?


Where can I order Lateral Flow Tests?

The test for people without symptoms of COVID-19 is called a rapid lateral flow test.



As of the 1st of April 2022, all restrictions were lifted and the need to regular testing ended too.

This link takes you to the latest guidance we have regarding managing COVID in school settings.





Mainstream childcare and education settings are expected to manage Covid-19 in line with other Acute Respiratory Infections (ARI). Management of cases of Covid-19 has now been incorporated into health protection guidance for managing cases of an infectious disease.
