Current information for parents

Children or adults should seek a test as soon as possible if they display any of the 3 main symptoms.
NHS listed symptoms are at least one of:
  • high temperature
  • new continuous cough
  • loss of or change to your sense of smell or taste (anosmia)
The self-isolation period is now 10 days for everyone. This means that, in the event of a positive test result for COVID-19 you should self-isolate for 10 days from:
  • the day you become symptomatic if you are the person who tested positive (case A), or
  • the day you tested positive, you did not have symptoms prior to testing positive (case B), or
  • the day you last had contact, if you are a close contact of someone who tested positive (case C).
To calculate the period of self-isolation, count as day 1
  • the first day following the onset of symptoms (case A), or
  • the day after the test was taken if you/ they were not symptomatic first (case B), or
  • the day after your last contact if you are a close contact of a positive case (case C).
Day 11 is then the day that you/ they can resume normal activity/ return to school.
