The government guidance around when you need to take a coronavirus (COVID-19) test and whether you need to take a PCR or lateral flow device test can feel like it is always changing. That's why we've created this flowchart, to make sure you are completely clear on the actions you need to take. The flowchart goes through exactly what you need to do, starting with whether you have coronavirus symptoms.

Please note that this flowchart does not cover daily testing for close contacts of confirmed cases of coronavirus.

To help this guidance become clear within your school, we've made the flowchart free of charge! Simply fill out your details below to access.
