Parent Reminder re Covid Symptoms

1 October 2020 (by ADMIN (admin))

In accordance with NHS guidance, if anyone in your household is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, they must arrange to be tested as soon as possible, and the whole household must isolate until the results come back. The three main symptoms 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 you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

 

Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms. It does not have to be more than one.

In accordance with school procedure, please inform us of any symptomatic household member, that we may update our records and ensure any necessary precautions are taken in school.

 

Thank you for your co-operation in keeping our whole school community safe.
