COVID-19 Information for Parents and Carers
What to do if your child or a member of the household develops symptoms of COVID 19
If anyone develops symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared as advised in https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance
You can arrange for testing for via https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-getting-tested.
All other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 10 days.
The 10-day period starts from the day when 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.
Household members staying at home for 10 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
If you can, 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.
