Covid isolation period reduced
The minimum self-isolation period for people testing positive for Covid-19 in England has been cut to five full days.
The quarantine period has been reduced after a review of the medical evidence.
But people will need to produce negative lateral flow tests on days five and six of their isolation.
So if your child has covid, do a lateral flow test on the morning of day 5 and 6 if they are both negative they can come back to school. If one if positive, repeat the process the next day, your child will need two negative lateral flows over two days to return. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-60011276
