COVID-19: Additional Guidance: 17th March

The advice around self-isolation has changed, for clarity, the new advice around self-isolation is as follows: 

  • If any member of a family show symptoms the advice is that the whole household should self-isolate for 14 days. This is to help to protect others in the community.
  • Women who are pregnant have been advised to avoid social contact where possible. 
  • An announcement about self-isolation for particular groups of people is expected later this week; these groups include:
    • Those who are pregnant
    • Have serious underlying health conditions
    • Are aged over 70.
  • Schools are to stay open

Of course the impact of these changes will be felt widely today.  For any member of staff or pupil who is currently self-isolating, the period of time has now been extended to 14 days.
