What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19
Mis à jour : nov. 6
If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they must not come to school and should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date that their symptoms appeared. Anyone with symptoms will be eligible for testing and this can be arranged via https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.
All other household members who remain well, must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. This includes anyone in your ‘Support Bubble’.

The 14-day period starts from the day the first person in the house became ill. Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home.
If you require help with buying groceries, other shopping, picking up medication, or walking a dog, you should ask friends or family. Alternatively, you can order your shopping online and medication by phone or online.
Household members staying at home for 14 days will help to reduce the risk of passing on the infection to others in the community.
If you are able to, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period.
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are the onset of:
· a new continuous cough;
· a high temperature;
· a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia).
