Coronovirus – update 2 (12 March 2020)

Thursday 12 March 2020

Today, the government has published guidance to self-isolate for people with confirmed or possible coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of a continuous cough and/or high temperature.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus infection (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home and do not leave your house for 7 days from when your symptoms started.

If your child displays these symptoms at home, please do not send him/her to school. Equally, if we notice your child is displaying these symptoms, we will ask you to collect your child from school – they wouldn’t be well enough to be in school, and may spread the virus.

We’ll continue to follow the government advice and update you.
