Latest Guidance for COVID - What happens if a staff member or a child tests positive for COVID-19?  ​​​​​​​

UKHSA guidance says that it is not recommended that children and young people are tested for COVID-19 unless directed by a health professional.  

For children and young people aged 18 and under who are recommended to take a COVID-19 test by a health professional and test positive, the advice is to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for three days. This is because children and young people tend to be infectious to other people for less time than adults.
