PCR test not required for returning to education after travel from 4th Oct

September 28, 2021

The Civil Contingencies Authority has agreed that from 4th October, when travel rules will see a further relaxing of restrictions, it will no longer be necessary for children to take a PCR test in order to return to an education setting after travelling into the Bailiwick.

However, children of Reception age or older will still be asked to take a lateral flow test at home before coming back to school if they have travelled in the previous 10 days.

All children have a supply of lateral flow tests as packs of 25 were provided at the beginning of the school year. If parents do require additional lateral flow tests, they are available from their child’s school or Beau Sejour.
