Advice For Preventing Symptomatic Persons Attending School

 

 

Preventing symptomatic persons attending school

·      Staff and pupils who report the following symptoms remain at home for 7 days. Their household members must remain at home for 14 days:

o   a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

o   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)

·      Pupils, parents / carers and any visitors, such as suppliers, are informed not to enter the school if they are displaying any symptoms of coronavirus.

·      The following information is shared with staff and pupils:

All staff and pupils who are attending a school will have access to a test if they display symptoms of coronavirus, they are encouraged to get tested in this scenario.

Where the pupil or staff member tests negative, they can return to their setting and the fellow household members can end their self-isolation.

Where the pupil tests positive, the rest of their class or group within their childcare or education setting are sent home and advised to self-isolate for 14 days. The other household members of that wider class or group do not need to self-isolate unless the child, young person or staff member they live with in that group subsequently develops symptoms.
