If children are at very low risk of spreading coronavirus do I still need to get them tested?


Yes. If your child shows any of the symptoms of coronavirus, you should still have them tested. Now that children are back to school in the UK, it’s important that you follow the guidance. If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus: get a test to check if your child has coronavirus as soon as possible. Keep them off school, stay at home and do not have visitors until you get their test result – only leave your home to have a test. Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until they get their result.
