Free testing for households with school age children

It has been announced today that all households with children of school age will be able to get two rapid covid-19 tests per person per week – delivering on the commitment to get children back in school and slow the spread of the virus. 

  • Young people have shown incredible resilience over the last year, continuing with their education amidst unprecedented challenges – but we all want to see our children back in the classroom from March 8. And we all want this to be safe.
  • That is why the government will provide regular, rapid testing to households, childcare and support bubbles of primary, secondary and college-age children and young people – helping to isolate new cases and keep our educational settings safe and children in school. 
  • By everyone playing their part and getting tested regularly, vital public services, workplaces and educational settings can stay open and running, and we can move closer to a more normal way of life.
