Autumn Term 2022 Update
Guidance for people with symptoms of a respiratory infection including COVID-19, or a positive test result for COVID-19.
As we commence a new school year here is a reminder of current government guidance for people with symptoms of a respiratory infection including COVID-19, or a positive test result for COVID-19:
- Symptoms of respiratory infections, including COVID-19:
Symptoms of COVID-19, flu and common respiratory infections 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
- Pupils who have symptoms of a respiratory infection, including COVID-19
Pupils with mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, or slight cough, who are otherwise well, can continue to attend the school. Pupils who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people, where they can. Pupils can return to school and resume normal activities when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough to attend.
- Pupils who have a positive test result
It is not recommended that children aged 18 years and under are tested for COVID-19 unless directed to by a health professional. If a pupil has a positive COVID-19 test result they should stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day they took the test (day 0 is the day of the test). After this period, if your child feels well and does not have a high temperature, the risk of passing the infection on to others is much lower and therefore they may return to school. This is because children and young people tend to be infectious to other people for less time than adults. Pupils who live with someone who has a positive COVID-19 test result should continue to attend school as normal.
