Peter Aldous calls for guidance for schools on covid-19 testing and for local testing to continue

17th September 2020

Peter Aldous calls on the Government to issue guidance to schools about when a covid-19 test is needed and to ensure local testing programmes such as that provided by Norfolk and Waveney CCG can continue to operate.

The feedback I am receiving from local schools is that the problems that staff and pupils are experiencing in getting tests could make it very difficult for some schools to remain open. To prevent this, can my right hon. Friend first liaise with the Secretary of State for Education to ensure that clear guidance is provided to schools about when to request a test? Secondly, can he do all he can to ensure that local testing programmes, such as that provided by the Norfolk and Waveney clinical commissioning group, continue to operate, as they do provide much-needed additional capacity?

Yes, I agree with both points made by my hon. Friend.
