Advice for parents on when children should have a Covid-19 test

Some parents are taking children for a Covid-19 test even if they don't have one of the virus symptoms, which are; a new continuous cough, fever/high temperature and loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste. 
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has therefore issued the following advice:

"We believe that children with simple cold symptoms such as coryzal symptoms (runny noses) or sore throats without fever, who would normally have attended schools in other times, should not be tested for Covid-19."
