Please find below the most recent changes to the Government guidelines for Covid 19. The new advice is that if children test positive on a Covid test they should stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days. We are classing the day of the positive result as Day 0 so the first day of staying at home would be the following day. Eg. If a child tests positive on a Monday they will be able to return on the Friday.
Changes to measures and guidance for managing COVID-19 in education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April
On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.
Free COVID-19 tests will continue to be available for specific groups, including eligible patients and NHS staff, once the universal testing offer ends on Friday 1 April.
Updated guidance will advise:
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.
