If your child has COVID-19 symptoms

If your child has one or more of the following, they should try and stay at home and avoid contact with others:

  • high temperature
  • new and continuous cough
  • loss or change to sense of smell or taste.

Arrange a free COVID-19 test using the NHS website or by calling 119.

If the test is positive, the child should stay at home as directed by government guidance.

If the test is negative, your child should return to school when they are well.
