guidance

We are  encouraging all members of our school community to help in the slowing of all germs, including Coronavirus, and protecting themselves by:

  • carrying tissues and using them to catch coughs or sneezes;

  • placing the tissue in the bin;

  • to kill the germs, washing their hands with soap and water, or using a sanitiser gel.

Public Health England (PHE), Leicester City Council and the local NHS continue to work closely together to respond, and Public Health England is currently contacting people who may have had close contact with any confirmed case.

 

Close contacts will be given health advice about symptoms and emergency contact details to use if they become unwell in the 14 days after they had contact with the confirmed case. This tried and tested method will ensure that any risk to them is minimised and the wider public is protected.

PHE and the NHS are well-prepared to deal with Coronavirus and the priority is to safeguard local communities which sometimes involves taking preventative measures to help reduce the risk of further cases.

Based on current evidence, Coronavirus COVID-19 presents with flu-like symptoms including a fever, a cough, or difficulty breathing. The current evidence is that most cases appear to be mild. Anyone who is concerned about health symptoms is advised to follow the advive about what to do on the Government's website www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public and nhs.uk/coronavirus.

  • Iran

  • Hubei province in China

  • Special care zones in South Korea (Daegu, Cheongdo, Gyeongsan)
