All those working in education and registered childcare and play settings will have access to Lateral Flow Devices (LFDs). This enables them to undertake a test for coronavirus at home twice a week. The LFDs provide a result within 30 minutes and don’t require a laboratory to process.
The test is for those who do not have coronavirus symptoms. If staff have coronavirus symptoms, they should self-isolate and arrange to have a polymerise chain reaction (PCR) test (you can book online or by calling 119) and not use the LFD test.

The Welsh Government Technical Advisory Group (TAG) has published a short report summarising advice about air cleaning devices. It draws on a summary of the research evidence set out in a longer paper published by Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) in response to a request to evaluate the effectiveness of air cleaning devices in removing the impact of COVID-19 aerosols in indoor spaces.
Key points include:
