Teachers and support staff are amazing and are risking their health- being situated in 'mass gatherings' in schools every day. They need access to Covid 19 test for all our sakes and to be able to keep schools open with confidence. Risking their own health to keep schools open is a personal compromise. Teachers' health shouldn't be placed at risk or compromised  in such large community environments. If they are feeling unwell or at risk they should be able to access a test and recover with certainty. Having a test to know if they are recovered would enable them to return to take part in their community. They can then help to sustain education for us through the coming months. It has implications for us all. Without this the uncertainty will add to stress and create dilemmas for these dedicated professionals. Public Health workers need advice, support and protection and quick access as a priority along with NHS workers. Fast tracking for teachers, school nurses & support staff could help to prevent spread of Covid 19 and offer support and wellbeing for staff and students.
