What type of COVID-19 test can I take?
There are two separate tests being offered for pupils in school:
- LAMP Testing (loop-mediated isothermal amplification) which is for Special Schools only;
- Lateral Flow Device Testing – for pupils in Years 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14, and all staff in funded pre-school settings, nursery schools, primary schools, post-primary schools and EOTAS units.
If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, including;
- a high temperature;
- a new, continuous cough; or
- noticed a loss or change in your sense of smell?
