INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS)

UPDATE MARCH 2021

Dear parents / carers

We are receiving regular updates from the Department for Education, with advice on how we can all help to restrict the impact of the disease. The current instructions (March 2021) are as follows:


If your child or another person in your house has…

· A HIGH TEMPERATURE (OVER 37.9°c)

· A NEW CONTINUOUS COUGH

· LOSS OR CHANGE OR TASTE OR SENSE OF SMELL

You MUST all stay at home until the person concerned has had a test and got their result. You can get a test by contacting:

www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test

Call 119 (7am – 11pm)

(YOU MUST TELL US THE RESULT AS SOON AS YOU KNOW SO THAT WE (LITTLESTEPS PRESCHOOL) CAN TAKE THE APPROPRIATE ACTION)

Please visit the link below, where it makes it clear that the single most important action that we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives. This at present an instruction rather than guidance.
