Weekly Covid Update – Somerset
Covid-19 case rates in educational settings remain on the increase across Somerset and the South-West, with the majority of cases in the 5 – 18-year age group, representing 60 percent of all Somerset cases at present. It therefore remains extremely important for children over the age of 11 who attend school or college, along with their parents or carers and school staff, to do a lateral flow test twice a week to help children continue to receive their education, by preventing the spread of Covid-19 in educational settings. We are also reminding parents to ensure children have a face covering to wear on school transport, to help protect the drivers and other children from catching Covid-19, and to keep the school buses running.
