Year 2 – Advise to test
We have been informed of a positive case of Covid 19 in our Y2 class. Your child can attend school as normal if they are well and have no symptoms.
The three key symptoms of Covid 19 are:
- a high temperature
- a new continuous cough
- a loss of taste and smell
Please be aware in young children, symptoms can also present as sickness and an upset stomach.
If your child has any of the main symptoms, please do not send your child to school and arrange for a PCR test. You can book a PCR test online through the NHS website at gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.
It is advised by Track and Trace (TTP) to test close contacts of a positive case on day 2 (as soon as possible) and day 8.
I will be sending you further information from Track and Trace (TTP) as soon as I receive it.
