Guidance on Staying at Home: 23.03.20

Tuesday 17th March 2020

 

New guidance for households with symptoms

Yesterday, the Government introduced new guidance on whole household isolation in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

·         if you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started

·         if you live with others and you or another member of the household have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community

·         for anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14-day isolation period.

The symptoms are:

·         A high temperature (37.8 degrees and above)

·         A new, continuous cough

The full stay at home guidance for households with these symptoms can be found here:

Monday 16th March 2020

 

In line with the new guidance if your child is displaying mild Covid-19 like symptoms they should remain at home for at least 7 days. These are; a continuous cough and or high temperature. Further information can be found here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ . Please inform the school as soon as possible that you are isolating your child, if after 7 days they are no longer displaying symptoms they can return to school. Likewise, if we are concerned about a child’s health in school we will contact you immediately.

 

I will inform you as soon as we have any updates or additional advice from the government or PHE.

 

Thank you for your continued support and understanding during these difficult times.
