Advice for Children/ Close contacts of positive COVID-19 cases

You will receive a message on Studybugs if we identify that your child may have been in close contact with an affected case. If you receive a message in line with the local guidance we recommend that your child has a PCR test after school (if they have not tested positive in the last 90 days). Please book online at: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test and please do advise the school of your test result on Studybugs.

If your child has no symptoms and has already had a PCR test as a result of a recent message sent from school, you may consider one further PCR test 4-7 days following receipt of the message. Otherwise, it is recommended that you continue with regular lateral flow testing.

Your child, and other members of your household can continue normal activities, including attending school provided your child (or anyone else in the household) does not develop symptoms whilst awaiting the PCR result.

In addition to the PCR test, we are advising children and parents to undertake lateral flow tests twice weekly (unless they have tested positive in the last 90 days) but this is at the discretion of parents and is not a requirement for children under 11. For information regarding access to lateral flow tests see:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing/regular-rapid-coronavirus-tests-if-you-do-not-have-symptoms/

Should the PCR (or any lateral flow testing) yield a positive result, we would ask that your child isolate, and follow national “Stay at Home” guidance.  If you live in the same household as someone with COVID-19, you should stay at home and self-isolate unless you are fully vaccinated or aged under 18 years.

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance

We are asking you to do this to reduce the further spread of COVID 19 to others in the community. If you need support with isolation, please contact Warwickshire Council on 0800 408 1447.

Please see below guidance for if your child/anyone in the household develops COVID-19 symptoms.

What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19

For most people, especially children, COVID-19 will be a mild illness.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of:

  • new continuous cough and/or
  • high temperature and/or
  • a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

If your child develops any of these symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home and arrangements should be made for them to be tested. This should be a test taken at an NHS site (a PCR test) and NOT a rapid test taken at a community testing site (an LFT test).

Testing can be arranged by calling 119 or online: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test

When the result of the child’s test is known further advice will be available.

How to stop COVID-19 spreading

There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
