PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

To keep staff and pupils safe and minimise the risk of further disruption to children’s education, there will still be protective measures in place in Camden’s schools, colleges and nurseries, including practising good hygiene, ventilation and regular COVID-19 testing.

There will be regular rapid lateral flow testing for secondary-aged students until the end of September to pick up cases with no symptoms.

After two on-site tests, these will be done twice-weekly at home.

Staff, parents and other household members aged over 11 are also advised to do home rapid tests twice-weekly. Find out about COVID-19 rapid test pick-up, delivery and in-person options at camden.gov.uk/rapidtest

Pupils, staff and visitors are still recommended to wear face coverings, unless exempt, in crowded indoor places, such as school buses or when mixing with people they don’t normally meet.

Face coverings must be worn on Transport for London services, unless exempt.

Parents should also consider wearing face coverings where it is crowded, such as drop-offs and pick-ups outside schools and nurseries.
