Message from Public Health England

People who live or work in Winsford, Northwich and two Chester postcode areas (CH1 3 and CH1 4) are asked to book a COVID-19 test in response to the increase in positive cases of the Delta COVID-19 variant in the area.  All staff, parents and pupils living, attending school or working in these areas are strongly encouraged to take a PCR test, whether or not they are showing symptoms and regardless of whether they have had the COVID-19 vaccine.  Residents who have had a positive PCR test in the last 90 days do not need to take another PCR test at this time. To book a test you should visit https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test and select ‘My local council or health protection team has asked me to get a test, even though I do not have symptoms‘ or call 119.  Lateral Flow Device home tests should not be used instead of a PCR test in this situation.  Please notify the school if you or your child test positive.
