Covid-19 testing at Gateway

Did you know up to one in three people who have COVID-19 could spread the virus without knowing?  This is because they have no symptoms, (asymptomatic).

To help to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus at Gateway through asymptomatic transmission we are offering testing for students who do not have coronavirus symptoms using lateral flow tests.  We are doing this in college by carrying out tests at home twice every week, 3-4 days apart.

Taking part in testing is voluntary and you will be able to attend college whether you take part in testing or not, however, we encourage all students to take part. Testing yourself at home will allow us to reduce the spread of the virus.

The documents below give you more information about the testing programme in our college:
