Dear parent / carer
Coronavirus – updated government guidance issued today
The government has issued new guidance for all UK citizens who have travelled to specific lockdown areas in Northern Italy (see attached), special care zones in South Korea as designated by the government of the Republic of South Korea and the Hubei province in China.
Anyone recently returning from these areas is advised to self-isolate at home for 14 days, even if they are not displaying any symptoms of the virus.
If you travelled to any of these affected areas during half term please can you advise the school at the earliest opportunity and we will ask that your child/children are kept at home for two weeks. You are also advised to ring 111 for NHS advice and guidance.
This is a purely precautionary measure.
Government guidance for other areas still remain in place – please refer to this link which provides the updated and existing guidelines and areas in the world where advice applies: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public#advice-for-travellers
