Primarily, children and young people with COVID-19 should not attend their school while they are infectious. They should take an LFD test from 5 days after their symptoms started (or the day their test was taken if they did not have symptoms) followed by another one the next day. If both test results are negative from day 5 and 6, they should return to their school, as long as they feel well enough to do so and do not have a temperature.
