Asymptomatic testing: early years staff in different settings

How staff in early years settings can access regular rapid coronavirus (COVID-19) testing.



This guidance explains the options for:

  • staff in school based nurseries and maintained nursery schools
  • staff in private, voluntary and independent nurseries (PVIs)
  • childminders

The asymptomatic testing programme does not replace the current testing policy for those with symptoms. Anyone with symptoms should self-isolate immediately and follow government guidance on symptomatic testing.
