Coronavirus/Covid-19 advice Update
We have been advised by Public Health England that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the Link School, at our Springwell Dene Site. This has affected our KS1 bubble.
As the person who tested positive has been without any symptoms throughout, and the test was undertaken for other reasons, it is not absolutely certain whether your child may have been exposed.
To take a precautionary approach we have agreed with Public Health Sunderland to follow national guidance as if the exposure has taken place. We have identified that your child has been in contact with the affected case. We recommend that your child now stay at home and self-isolate until Sunday 24th January 2021, pupils can then return to school on Monday 25th January 2021, if they do not have symptoms.
We are asking you to do this to reduce the further spread of COVID-19 to others in the community.
If your child is well at the end of the 10 days period of self-isolation, then they can return to usual activities.
Other members of your household can continue normal activities provided your child does not develop symptoms within the 10 day self-isolation period.
Please see the link to the PHE Staying at Home Guidance
What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19
If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared.
All other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 10 days. The 10-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
Household members staying at home for 10 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
If you are able to, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
