School and EducationLast update: 03/05/2022
The requirement to wear a mask has been lifted for both pupils and teachers.
Your child is considered to be a contact and will need to take a self-test, antigen test or nasopharyngeal PCR test (or saliva PCR test for children under 12 years old) on day 2 or 3. Children should stay home from school until they receive their test result only if they have symptoms.
If the test result is negative, your child can continue to attend or go back to school.
If the result is positive, your child will need to self-isolate for 7 days from the onset of symptoms or their positive test if they are asymptomatic.
Please note, a positive self-test must be confirmed by a nasopharyngeal PCR test (or saliva PCR test for children under 12 years old).
