Importance of twice-weekly testing
Date: 28 May 2021
Message for students: Importance of twice-weekly testing
All staff and students are encouraged to test twice a week. Around 1 in 3 people who have the Covid-19 virus have no symptoms. Tests are quick and free to collect from College, with results in around 30 minutes. Whatever your result, report it right away.
Please make a special attempt to record the twice-weekly test results on both the College and Government websites, whatever they are, during half term and especially on returning from the half term break, between 6-12 June.

(This is for the College’s internal records and information to enable us to gauge the take up of testing.)
We do recognise that the Government (NHS) site only allows test results to be recorded within 24 hours of having taken the test, so they can at times be easily missed. However, we need to make the testing AND recording part of our routine so that we can keep our friends, families and communities safe and we can keep life moving.
If you do have a positive lateral flow test result, please self-isolate at home and request a PCR test with the NHS. The PCR test result takes precedence. If the result is negative, please send the result to your tutor at the College and they will facilitate your return to College. If the PCR test result is positive, please continue to self-isolate and contact NHS 111 for support.
