In response to the Government’s update to the Coronavirus strategy yesterday (Monday 16th March 2020) we are following the Government issued advice regarding isolation.
This guidance is intended for:
• people with symptoms that may be caused by coronavirus, and do not require hospital treatment, who must remain at home until they are well
• those living in households with someone who shows symptoms that may be caused by coronavirus
The main messages are:
• if you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
• it is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community.
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
• new continuous cough and/or
• high temperature
If your child presents these symptoms however mild, they and other household members should stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days from when the symptoms start.
You do not need to call NHS111 to go into self-isolation.
