As more cases are confirmed we have been issued with the following link from the Government containing advice on how we can all help to protect ourselves and others. Rigorous hand washing is being asked of everyone throughout the day in school.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms in children
Children can get coronavirus (COVID-19), but they seem to get it less often than adults and it's usually less serious.
The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
- a loss or change to a sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
- Please note there have been press reports that the Delta variant can feel “more like a bad cold” – particularly for young people with reports of symptoms like a headache, runny nose and sore throat being commonly linked to this new variant. Remember if you are at all unsure please take a test.
