What to do if your child develops symptoms or tests positive for COVID
If your child has a positive lateral flow device (LFD) result they are advised to self-isolate immediately, and aren't required to take a confirmatory PCR test.
If your child develops COVID symptoms, they are advised to get a PCR test and remain at home until the result is known.
If negative, the child can end self-isolation and return to school once well.
If positive, the child should isolate as a positive case (see image below).
If your child has symptoms but has a negative LFD result, they are advised to still get a PCR test and isolate whilst waiting for the result.
