If unwell, staff and students should be excluded from attending the school until they are assessed by their primary care provider.
HOW CAN WE HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS?
Practising good sneeze/cough hygiene is the best defence against most viruses. You should:
• Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet
• Cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser
• If unwell, avoid contact with others (stay more than 1.5 metres from people)
While coronavirus is of concern, it is important to remember that most people displaying symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat or tiredness are likely suffering with a cold or other respiratory illness – not coronavirus.
