Please see the message below from Durham County Council:
If anyone in your household has symptoms you need to book a PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test as soon as possible. For more information and to book a PCR test visit www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or call NHS test and trace free on 119
As coronavirus symptoms in children can vary it is advised that children who are unwell should not attend school until they are well again.
If you have difficulty accessing a PCR test your school may be able to help, as most schools retain a small stock of these tests.
Alternatively Durham County Council offers support to people seeking further advice about coronavirus through the County Durham Together Community Hub, details of which can be found at www.durham.gov.uk/covid19help or by phoning 03000 260 260.
