COVID19 Symptoms and Testing

Dear Staff, Parents/carers you should self isolate for 7 days (14 days for a household):

  • 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)
  • Loss of sense of smell or taste

Essential workers, students and their families are eligible for testing and we strongly recommend that you do this if you have displayed symptoms
