Up to a third of individuals who test positive for coronavirus have no symptoms at all and can therefore spread it unknowingly. That is why the testing of people without symptoms is so important. Identifying those who unknowingly have the virus will save lives. This is known as ‘mass testing’. By testing staff once a week we will be helping to keep schools and colleges as safe as we can. We will also be able to keep more teachers, support staff and pupils in education.

Previously, close contacts had to isolate if one student or staff member tested positive. Now, those who are close contacts can return to the college if they agree to be tested once a day in the morning – known as ‘serial testing’ or 'daily contact testing'.
