If you suspect your child has coronavirus or has a positive test:
Do not send your child to their nursery, childminder, school, college or to an entry test for a selective school if:
· they are showing one or more coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms
· they have had a positive test result
· there are other reasons requiring them to stay at home, for example, they are required to quarantine
If your child has been identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 please ensure they take a lateral flow tests every day for 7 days.
Anyone with a positive test result will need to self-isolate in line with the stay at home guidance (if they become symptomatic at school, you will need to arrange for them to be collected).
You should follow the latest government guidance on confirmatory PCR tests following a positive LFD test.
