This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's COVID Schools Programme Officer, Heather Cook, for the attention of all schools.
It is now being requested that Education Settings:
- Only report confirmed PCR tests. ‘Awaiting tests’ means that there will potentially be multiple reports for the same case(s), which is leading to confusion. Lateral Flow test results/notification about someone with COVID-19 symptoms is not needed.
- Only report each case once.
- The date of the PCR has been included as this is helpful for data collection purposes.
- A date and time of the report has also been included as occasionally multiple reports from the same setting are being submitted, so this identifies whether it is a new or repeat notification.
The notifications email address remains the same: CV19Notifications@slough.gov.uk
