Please be aware of the latest update to the current guidelines from the government.
‘’If one person in any household has a persistent cough or fever, everyone living there must stay at home for 14 days.
This is a change from the 7 day isolation period announced last Friday.
Any pupils who are currently self-isolating should now self-isolate for 14 days rather than 7 from the onset of their symptoms however mild.
Another crucial difference is that whole families now need to self-isolate together even if only one person has symptoms – so if one child is sent home because of symptoms, their siblings should be too. If any children from school are self-isolating and have a sibling who is not symptomatic attending school, the sibling should now be at home too.
Thank you for your support at this time. We will keep you updated with any new developments to the situation.
The Government have recently 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:
