Student Testing - Visual
This guide is to inform Noadswood students how the swab will work in January - though a little uncomfortable it is a rapid test which will allow test and trace to be more effective (as well as allowing you to continue to study at Noadswood, even if someone in your bubble has tested positive for Covid-19).
Serial testing is designed to allow 'close contacts' of someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 to return to Noadswood if you have agreed to be tested daily for 7 days.
