What should I do if my child is a contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19?

 

If you have been informed, either by school or by NHS Track and Trace, that your child is a contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, they must self-isolate at home for 14 days from the date of their last contact with the person who has tested positive for COVID-19.

 

Self-isolation means they must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days.

It is very important that you follow this advice even if they feel well, as symptoms can take up to 14 days to appear from their last contact with the person who has tested positive for COVID-19.

 

Self-isolating in this way will help protect your family, friends, the wider community and the NHS. Anyone who is notified that they are a contact of someone who has tested positive and is advised to self-isolate has a legal duty to self-isolate. Failure to comply may result in a fine.

 

If you are unclear about instructions given to you by school or don't know what action to take please contact the school office for more help.
