In the event of your child needing to go to get tested for Covid-19 here is a Social Story which may help you explain the process. When children know what is coming they are less anxious so the better prepared they are the better.
If I feel very hot or have a bad cough, the doctor might tell me to go for a swab test
There are lots of people going to get a ‘swab test’ because people want to keep safe from spreading the coronavirus. We do not want to spread the virus to other people. I will get a text to find out what time I will go to the centre.
My mam or dad will bring me to the swab test centre.
The person working there is trying to help me. They will ask me to blow my nose.
If I have to cough, I will try to turn away.
Then they will put the cotton bud in my nose
Then I can go home.
