3rd July 2020.
Dear Parents and Carers,
We have been advised by Public Health England that there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 within our school community.
I would like to take time to reassure you that we have taken all necessary actions since hearing this information to keep all children at our school as safe as possible. The children in the bubble involved and the staff are now self-isolating for 14 days and the room has been deep cleaned.
We are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England and Liverpool City Council. This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.
The school remains open and providing your child remains well they can continue to attend school as normal. We will keep this under review and as always I will inform you if anything changes.
If you are worried about anything at all please give me a call or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19
If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home for at least 7 days from the date when their symptoms appeared. Anyone with symptoms will be eligible for testing and this can be arranged via https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.
All other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days.
The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home.
Household members staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
If you are able can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
