COVID19 Guidance

Changes to Measures and Guidance for Managing COVID-19 in Education and Childcare Settings from Friday 1 April 2022


Updated guidance advises:

  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school, college or childcare when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend.

  • Children with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days, which is when they are most infectious.
