Covid-19 updated guidance- 31st March 2022
Updated guidance from the government
On 31st March 2022 the Department for Education issued an updated guidance document to schools in relation to Covid-19.
The guidance and recommended actions are:-
Self-isolation due to a positive Covid-19 test
- Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious
- For children and young people aged 18 and under with a positive Covid-19 test should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days
Anyone feeling unwell with the following:-
- Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and they no longer have a high temperature
- Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school, college or childcare when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend
Tracing close contacts, asymptomatic testing and face coverings are no longer required.
COVID cases in our school community remains very low compared to local and national averages, however if we were to see increased cases, we would continue to follow our COVID contingency plans and additional measures as directed.
Hygiene and cleaning regime
All other COVID measures within school remain in place, for example, additional cleaning during the day, sanitising measures and advice to keep rooms well ventilated.
