For Cheapside Preschool & Rainbow Kids Club, this means if your child has symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, they must stay at home and not leave the house for 7 days from when their symptoms started.
These symptoms are:
• new continuous cough (defined by local Public Health as a continuous cough that doesn’t stop throughout the day), and/or high temperature
• high temperature (a normal temperature for children is around 36.4C)
The NHS advice is to self-isolate for 7 days and not to go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home. The NHS website provides tips for staying at home should you find yourself needing to self-isolate.
Unless otherwise advised by Public Health England, only the family member who is self-isolating or has a diagnosis needs to self-isolate. Other family members can still attend Pre-school or Rainbow Kids Club.
