To support the delay
of the spread of the virus, the Department for Health and Social Care has asked
anyone who shows certain symptoms to stay at home for 7 days, regardless of
whether they have travelled to affected areas. This means people should stay at
home and avoid all but essential contact with others for 7 days from the point
of displaying mild symptoms, to slow the spread of infection.
The symptoms are:
A high temperature (37.8 degrees and above)# A new, continuous cough
You do not need to
call NHS 111 to stay at home. If your symptoms worsen during your stay at home
period or are no better after 7 days contact NHS 111 online at 111.nhs.uk. If
you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial
Current advice remains
in place: no education or children’s social care setting should close in
response to a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case unless advised to do so by
Public Health England.
The Chief Medical
Officer has advised that the impact of closing schools on both children’s
education and on the workforce will be substantial, but the benefit to public
health may not be. Decisions on future advice to schools will be taken based on
the latest and best scientific evidence, which at this stage suggests children
are a lower risk group.
