Home Test Kits for Students
Up to one in three people who have COVID-19 can spread the virus without knowing. This is because they have no symptoms. To reduce the spread of the virus, we need to identify those individuals. We can do this in Mosslands School by carrying out tests at home twice every week, 3-4 days apart.
The Government has recently announced that all secondary and college aged students will be offered tests to make the return to school safer for everyone. Please follow this link to read through the guidance Government Guidance Home Test Kits
