Dearne Valley College is offering a COVID-19 lateral flow test for all students returning to the various College sites.
If students are already competent in carrying out home-based LFD tests (as is the current direction of the UK Government), they can continue to do so and can collect test kits from any of the College receptions.
Students who do not wish to start home testing straight away can attend any of our testing sites (when they are open) to perform a test.
For students who wish to book a test on-site, they will need to complete a consent form and phone the number below to book an appointment. Please note, consent is only required for testing on-site. The Consent form can be found here.
Testing site bookings can be made by calling 01709 722722.
This testing programme is for people with no symptoms. If anyone develops symptoms at any time (such as a high temperature; a new, continuous cough; or a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste) they must immediately self-isolate, and book a PCR test by calling 119 or visiting https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test.
