The symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
* a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
* a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
* a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed that you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
To protect others, please do not go to places like a GP surgery, chemist or hospital if you or your children have any of these symptoms. Get a test to check if you or your child has coronavirus and stay at home until you get the result.
If your child displays symptoms at home:
Keep them, and any brothers or sisters (everyone in the household) at home and book a test. Inform the school of the situation and also the result of the test.
If someone else in your household displays symptoms:
Keep your child/children (everyone in the household) at home until a test is taken and the result known. Tell the school the result of the test.
If your child is in contact with someone outside your household who tests positive:
Your child may only need to be tested if you are contacted by someone from the Track and Trace team (also known as TTP –Track, Trace and Protect). Please contact the school to discuss whether your child can attend school.
If your child displays symptoms in school:
Your child will be kept apart from other children, we will inform you and ask you to collect your child and any brothers or sisters. It is vital that we can contact you during every school day. You will need to arrange a test for them.[Read more…]
