Email the school/ setting / absence line

Remember:

Let the school / setting know when symptoms started, then count 10 days after this to get the date your child will be able to return to school if they are well enough.

Why do we need to contact different people at the beginning of half term?

When Covid-19 symptoms start the person is infectious 48 hours before this and up to 10 days afterwards.  If your child gets symptoms over the weekend it may impact on others in their class. But if they get symptoms from Monday of half term onwards and then gets tested positive you won’t need to alert the school/setting.  You will need to let all those your child has been in close contact with know they have tested positive and they will need to self-isolate.

This includes letting any half term out of school care / holiday clubs / activity clubs know about symptoms and test results too.

There’s lots of useful Covid-19 information for parents and carers here:
