Kate Green responds to news that families of school children can recieve home Covid tests

Responding to news that the families of school children can also receive two weekly home Covid tests, Kate Green Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, said:

“School testing will not work if families struggling financially are too scared about losing out on income to take the tests.

“If the Government is serious about using testing to help get all children back to school they must improve self-isolation support by extending eligibility for the £500 Test and Trace Support Payment to anyone without access to workplace sick pay.”
