Letter for parents about Covid symptoms

Public Health England has produced a letter for schools to distribute to parents which explains when a child requires a coronavirus test and what the symptoms of coronavirus are. The letter is intended to answer some of the questions parents may have around testing and when a child should be tested. It also signposts NHS guidance on when a child may be too ill to attend school.
