Lateral Flow Devices (LFD).
This week staff decided if they wanted to opt in to self test for COVID-19 twice a week using lateral flow devices (LFD). This has been implemented by the government to try and manage the current infection rates. It is believed the use of these tests amongst staff will help to identify those who may be positive for COVID-19 and are still infectious, yet are asymptomatic. If a member of staff tests positive we will of course immediately inform the bubble in the usual way to self-isolate.
