Lateral flow tests should only be used if you do not have symptoms. If you do a lateral flow test and receive a positive result, you should book a PCR test as soon as possible. You should also advise school; do not wait until you have the PCR results.
If you have any of the following symptoms, get a PCR test immediately; do not use a lateral flow test:
· a high temperature
· a new, continuous cough
· a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
