Guidance - April 1st 2022
From April 1st 2022, guidance for Educational Settings has been updated:
Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and they no longer have a high temperature.
Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school, college or childcare when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend.
Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice will be 3 days.
Everyone is encouraged to continue use of hygiene measures including regular hand washing/sanitising, covering the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, and regularly cleaning surfaces.
