Covid 19 Information

January 2022 - COVID-19 Update

 

Following the new arrangements within the Governments Plan B (which will remain in place until Wednesday 23rd January), the 10 day self-isolation period for those who record a positive PCR test result for COVID-19 has been reduced to 7 days in most circumstances, unless you cannot test for any reason.  Guidance now states that LFT's should be carried out on day 6 and 7 of the self-isolation period.  Those who receive two negative test results are no longer required to complete the 10 full days of self-isolation.  The first test must be taken no earlier than day 6 of the self-isolation period and tests must be taken 24 hours apart. If both test results are negative and there are no symptoms e.g. high temperature, the self isolation ends after the second negative test result.

 

If your child is in close contact of a positive case of COVID-19 then please continue with daily LFT's for 7 days and if your child begins to show symptoms, get a PCR test, so that we can keep our community safe and prevent the spread of infection. If your child is well enough to come to school and has received a negative result on either the LFT's or PCR tests then they can come into school. 

 

Should your child receive a positive LFT or PCR result, please inform Mrs Chiswell or Mrs Bartlett in the main office via email admin@aldbury.herts.sch.uk or telephone 01442 851240.

 

Main symptoms of coronavirus are:

•  a high temperature

•  a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours

•  a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

If you’re not sure whether symptoms suggest that they have coronavirus or an everyday cough or cold, you can consult this online NHS symptom checker: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/
