COVID – 19

 

The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

  • 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

 

What to do if you have symptoms:

If you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, even if they're mild:

 

  • Get a PCR test (test that is sent to a lab) to check if you have COVID-19 as soon as possible.

  • Stay at home and do not have visitors (self-isolate) until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test. Check if people you live with need to self-isolate

  • Do inform us immediately as we may need to inform the schools you have worked with in the previous 48 hours.

 

 

Lateral Flow Tests

Although testing is not mandatory and it is voluntary for staff to participate, the Government has advised that if you’re going to a school, nursery or college premises, or someone in your household or support or childcare bubble is, the rest of your household or bubble should:

  • take a rapid lateral flow test twice a week (every 3 or 4 days)

  • report the rapid lateral flow test results the day they take the test

 

The Government advises that twice-weekly testing and reporting remains vital to help stop COVID-19 spreading.  Employers continue to play a key role in encouraging their workers to test and report, and as such as we are providing free tests directly to workers available to collect at the office.  The Government have advised those who test positive via a rapid test are then invited to take a confirmatory PCR test so we can sequence and identify the Delta variant. You can order
