What to do if your child has symptoms
If your child has any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:
Anyone you live with (this includes siblings), and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get the result.
If the test is negative, all children can return to school if well enough to do so. Please ensure you let the school know the outcome of the test as soon as possible.
If the test is positive, the child with the positive test must isolate for 10 days starting from when the symptoms started. The rest of the household, including siblings, must then isolate for 14 days from the day the symptoms started. Please ensure you let the school know the outcome of the test as soon as possible.
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.
