It is vitally important that no one displaying symptoms of Covid attends school or nursery.

If your child or anyone in your household is showing the symptoms of Covid, all members of the household need to isolate immediately and the person with symptoms should have a Covid test.

The symptoms of Covid are:

All members of the household must also isolate until the result of the test is back. Please alert your child’s school if you have taken them for a test (and only access a COVID test for individuals if they develop symptoms).

Isolation means you should stay at home. Do not go to work, go out shopping or take your children to school or nursery. You will need to make arrangements for family or friends to help out. You should not socialise or have any visitors to your home.

If the test of the person with symptoms is negative, then no-one needs to isolate.

If the test of the person with symptoms is positive then the person who has tested positive for Covid must isolate for 10 days and everyone else in the house must isolate for 14 days.  Parents/carers should make schools/educational settings and workplaces aware of any positive test.  

Testing is available locally. Anyone with any of the coronavirus symptoms is advised to book a test online www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.

For further information about Covid, please call 111 or go to www.gov.uk/coronavirus
