COVID-19

If your child is displaying any of the symptoms of COVID-19 they MUST NOT attend school and if you have access to an LFT or PCR test this is recommended. 

 

Symptoms of COVID-19 (as taken from www.nhs.uk) are recent onset of any of the following:

 

  • a high temperature or shivering (chills) – a high temperature 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
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • shortness of breath
  • feeling tired or exhausted
  • an aching body
  • a headache
  • a sore throat
  • a blocked or runny nose
  • loss of appetite
  • diarrhoea
  • feeling sick or being sick

 

The symptoms are very similar to symptoms of other illnesses, such as colds and flu.
