Issue partly lies with schools and nurseries, who have to be careful which is understandable but it’s so common for them to get colds. My two year old had a temperature on Thursday, test on Friday that was inconclusive so had another on Monday with no results yet. They won’t let her back until they get a confirmed negative so in the meantime we’re all at home. I’m a teacher and her sister is in year 1. My wife has had a temperature all last night and today but can’t get a test so the only option appears to be that nobody leaves the house.
Edit: sounds a bit like I’m blaming schools which I’m not. None of this would be an issue if the testing system actually worked.
