Coronavirus COVID_19

General Covid-19 advice If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a PCR test as soon as possible.

 

  • Stay at home until you get the result.
  • Contact school to inform us if anyone in your household has any of the main symptoms
  • Self- isolate the whole household
  • Get a Covid 19 test
  • Inform school immediately of the test result

 

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

 

People who are sick with coronavirus may have other flu like symptoms such as:

• body aches

• persistent headaches

• sore throat

• tiredness

• shortness of breath

• nausea or

• diarrhoea

 

If you don’t have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus, you don’t need to self isolate or get a PCR test, however you do need to continue to take the usual measures to protect yourself and others from illness.

What is meant by a ‘contact’? 

 

A ‘contact’ is a person who has been close to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 anytime from 2 days before the person was symptomatic up to 10 days from onset of symptoms (this is when they are infectious to others). For example, a contact can be: 

  • people who spend significant time in the same household as a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 
  • sexual partners 
  • a person who has had face-to-face contact (within one metre), with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, including: 
    • being coughed on 
    • having a face-to-face conversation within one metre 
    • having skin-to-skin physical contact, or 
    • contact within one metre for one minute or longer without face-to-face contact 
  • a person who has been within 2 metres of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 for more than 15 minutes 
  • a person who has travelled in a small vehicle with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or in a large vehicle or plane near someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 

Where an interaction between 2 people has taken place through a Perspex (or equivalent) screen, this would not be considered sufficient contact, provided that there has been no other contact such as any of those indicated above.
