Information for Parents

We as a community and as a society are most certainly in 'unprecedented times'- a phrase that didn't seem to exist until 18 months ago.
Current advice is still that anyone developing symptoms of Covid should arrange for a PCR test and if the result is positive they should isolate for 10 days.
Since August 16th the need for bubbles or close contacts to self isolate has been removed as long as they:
  • Are under the age of 18 years and 6 months
  • Are double vaccinated
  • Are unable to get a vaccination due to advice from their medical consultant for medical reasons
  • they have taken part in or are currently part of an approved COVID-19 vaccine trial

The recommendation is however that as a close contact a PCR test (not a Lateral Flow Test) is taken to rule out being asymptomatically positive.
