Please Stay At Home:-
a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital if you have any of these symptoms. Get a test to check if you have coronavirus and stay at home until you get your result
You must keep your child at home for 10 days if they have any of the above symptoms. If they test negative and are feeling well, they can return as long as 48 hours have passed since any fever, sickness or diarrhoea. If they do not take a test or the test isn't negative, they cannot return to childcare for 10 days.
You must keep your child at home for 10 days if anyone in their household or support bubble has any of the above symptoms. Your child must stay home for the full 10 days and a negative result does not reduce this isolation period.
If you change bubbles or breach the government guidelines, please keep your child at home for 10 days.
Sore throat or swollen glands
Childhood illnesses - check with your childcare provider. Children must stay home for at least the minimum recommended period and may not return until well.
Not well enough to attend school, preschool, nursery or other childcare setting.
Unwell enough to need pain or fever relieving medication such as Calpol.
Unable to join in the normal routine, including school runs & toddler groups, parks & playgrounds & active play.
Under the Weather? A rest & chill day at home may be the best medicine. We cannot care for children who are unwell. Please err on the side of caution and keep your child at home if they are poorly.
Come back if you can collect within 30 mins* if so requested and:-
Symptoms cleared & mininum exclusion /isolation period has passed
Fever free for at least 48 hours without the aid of medication
at least 48 hours have passed since the last episode of vomitting or diarrhoea
at least 48 hours since starting antibiotics
A bit "Under the Weather" or a little tired but none of the main COVID symptoms and still able to join in normal routine & activities including school run and toddler groups.
* If it will take you more than 30 minutes to leave work and reach your Childcare Setting, you may need to arrange for someone else to be on standby in case your child becomes unwell again. Make sure your Childcare Provider has up to date emergency contacts. (subject to COVID restrictions and maintaining social distancing - anyone collecting your child must be part of your household or support bubble)
