For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:
Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education setting. Children who are unwell with symptoms of a respiratory infection should stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
Symptoms of a respiratory infection include:
- continuous cough
- high temperature, fever or chills
- loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell
- shortness of breath
- unexplained tiredness, lack of energy
- muscle aches or pains that are not due to exercise
- not wanting to eat or not feeling hungry
- headache that is unusual or longer lasting than usual
- sore throat, stuffy or runny nose
- diarrhoea, feeling sick or being sick
Your child can return to school when they are well enough to attend and no longer have a high temperature (if they had one).
- If your child tests positive for COVID they should stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days following a positive COVID test result. This starts from the day after they did the test. They should continue to stay off school until they have recovered and no longer have a temperature (if they had one).
- Remote learning can only be provided if your child is a confirmed positive COVID case and not for other infectious illnesses such as the common cold etc.
We will continue to provide remote learning for children who are a confirmed positive COVID case and well enough to complete the work, until the end of the academic year 2022.
- Free COVID testing for the general public is no longer available.
