Covid-19 Tests

This information is from IW Council – March 2021

Protect yourselves and your friends and family when everyone returns to school.

Free, twice weekly rapid response testing for COVID-19 is now available for members of households, childcare or support bubbles of school staff and pupils.

Home testing kits will be available for pick up soon, but if you want to get tested sooner, book a test at an Isle of Wight Council rapid response community testing site. These are open 6 days a week across the Island (check sites for individual opening hours). Testing is quick and simple to do and you get your results texted/emailed to your phone in 30 mins. It’s a great chance learn how to take a test so you’re ready for when you can test at home. Find out what happens at a rapid response community testing centre here.

You can also order kits for home delivery.

We’re also making free rapid response community testing available to anyone who’s out for essential reasons – please do tell your family and friends to book a test for when they’re out shopping, taking exercise or going to work outside the home.

Government Coronavirus action plan

Last week the Coronavirus action plan was launched. This document sets out what the UK as a whole has done to tackle the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and what it plans to do next.

The action plan can be found here:

The document includes:

  • what we know about the virus and the disease it causes
  • how we have planned for an infectious disease outbreak, such as the current coronavirus outbreak
  • the actions we have taken so far in response to the current coronavirus outbreak
  • what we are planning to do next, depending upon the course the current coronavirus outbreak takes
  • the role the public can play in supporting this response, now and in the future

Current advice remains in place: No school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless advised to do so by Public Health England.

The importance of hygiene

Personal hygiene is the most important way we can tackle COVID-19, especially washing hands more; and the catch it, bin it, kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes.

Please help us in sharing simple and effective hand hygiene messages.

Public Health England has a dedicated webpage with a range of posters and digital materials at:

Sign up is quick, free and means you will be alerted as more resources are made available.
