COVID-19 Update

7th June 2021
FOR PRIMARY SCHOOLS AND EARLY YEARS:

While younger children are not routinely tested, testing is available should parents/carers wish to take it up.

Parents/carers can also test themselves as an indicator of whether there is a likelihood of COVID being transmitted among the family. If anyone tests positive, the household should isolate immediately, inform the school/early years setting and book a PCR test.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

With the warmer weather and increased pollen levels, it’s important for people to understand the difference between the symptoms of hay fever and COVID-19. 

While the symptoms of coronavirus and hay fever can overlap, people with hay fever don’t experience a high temperature and most won’t feel unwell. But hay fever can play tricks on your sense of smell and give you a sore throat. If you suffer with hay fever, make sure you are regularly tested for COVID-19 to be on the safe side.
