Isolation. What this means and why it is important
We have just been sent a photograph of a child, who should be isolating at home, at a campsite, that was posted on social media by their parent today.
For everybody’s guidance, here is the guidance and law regarding rules of isolating if you have been identified as a contact of somebody with a positive coronavirus. Due to the age of infants and social distancing expectations, all children in class are identified as coming into close contact
In the south-east, anybody identified to self isolate have also been advised to take a PCR test to try to limit the spread of the new Delta variant.
Please abide by isolation rules. Many schools are finding that when their child has taken a PCR test, they have COVID but may be presenting as asymptomatic. We are hoping that no more of our bubbles are sent home. Unfortunately, our hope is becoming less, when photographs such as this are sent to us.
