Current Covid Guidance:
The population now has much stronger protection against COVID-19 than at any other point in the pandemic. This means we can begin to manage the virus like other respiratory infections, thanks to the success of the vaccination programme and access to antivirals, alongside natural immunity and increased scientific and public understanding about how to manage risk.
The updated guidance for education settings, released on Friday 1st April, advised schools to continue to promote good hygiene (regular handwashing/use of hand gel), good standard of regular cleaning and to have sufficient ventilation in classrooms (which we check regularly through our CO2 monitors).
If you are unsure and require medical advice, call 111 or contact your doctor.
To arrange a test, visit the testing website or call 119.
