Under current government guidelines, the 3 main symptoms to be aware of for COVID-19 in children are:
- A high temperature (Above 37.8)
- A new, continuous cough.
- A loss/change of taste or smell.
It is vital that you have your own thermometer at home so you can measure your child's temperature accurately and correctly. You will need this information when speaking to Health Professionals. If your child or anyone in your child's household is showing any of these symptoms, you MUST complete a COVID-19 test (LFD test).
If your child tests positive for COVID-19, they will now be required to isolate for at least 5 days. You will need to complete LFD tests with your child from Day 5. If they test negative for TWO consecutive days, they will be able to leave isolation and return to school. Please contact school for further information if required.
