Coronavirus Information

From 1 April, updated guidance will advise people with symptoms of a respiratory infection, including COVID-19, and a high temperature or who feel too unwell to attend school/work to remain at home. LFT are no longer accepted as proof, any COVID-19 will need to be confirmed with a PCR test at a cost, anyone with a positive COVID-19 test result will then be advised to try to stay at home by track and trace for five days. Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people, where they can. They can go back to school, college or childcare when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend.
