Education Noticeboard: COVID-19 Guidance for Schools

COVID-19: Further updated guidance from the Health Protection Hub

Coronavirus: Further updated guidance for schools

The Health Protection Hub Relationship with Schools document, last sent out on 3 September 2021, has been updated to include:

  • a checklist to support schools when they have a positive COVID case (see page 7 of this guidance)
  • an amendment to the advice about when staff who are close contacts need to self-isolate which now states: where staff are identified as a close contact of a positive case and are exempt from self-isolation (for example they are double vaccinated) then they are not asked to self-isolate whilst they await the outcome of a PCR test but rather should continue to attend school.

The full, updated, document is available to download.
