Important Information from the Department of Education regarding Testing at home throughout the Easter holidays for schools and colleges – update 23/03/2021.
Following the success of the asymptomatic testing programme on the return to school and college, it is vital to keep testing at home throughout the Easter holidays and into the summer term.
For all those eligible, please ensure you continue to:
- test twice a week at home from now on (test kits will be issued to students prior to the holidays)
- report results online as positive, negative or void. This information is critical to understand the prevalence of the virus across the country
- test twice weekly over the Easter holidays
- test before returning to school or college for the summer term, either the night before, or morning of, the first day back, to find and isolate any positive cases
