To help reduce Covid-19 risks to everyone at school, their families and contacts, the PC would like to highlight and encourage, parents and others in households of school children to use the free twice-weekly home testing kits for those withoutsymptoms. Home test kits can be delivered to your door, so you can test yourself and your family without leaving your home.
We understand that 1 in 3 people do not have any symptoms but can still pass it on.
With the Easter hols there is likely to be more mixing between people of different ages, particularly at places like the playground, so it would be good if households start to do this before they go back to school.
Lateral flow test kits can be obtained from pharmacies, or ordered online:
You can order 1 pack of home test kits containing 7 tests for home delivery. Your tests should arrive within 2 days.
The census, run by the Office for National Statistics, is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales.
All households will be asked to take part in Census 2021 on 21 March.
This census will be the first to be predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code to complete the questionnaire on a computer, phone or tablet. Paper questionnaires will be available if you need them.
The census results will be available within 12 months and will inform where millions of pounds of public funding is spent on services like cycle routes, schools and surgeries.
For more information, visit the census website or email SODC’s Insight and Policy team.
