You may have seen on local news that the seven local authorities across the North East (Sunderland City Council, Newcastle, Northumberland, South Tyneside, North Tyneside, Gateshead and Durham) issued a joint request to local government earlier in the week, asking to introduce stricter COVID-19 prevention measures in response to rising infection rates across the North East.
A formal government announcement was made at midday today regarding the increase of restrictions in Sunderland and across the North East. Included in these restrictions is the mandatory use of face coverings in corridors and communal areas of schools for pupils in Year 7 and above, as well as staff and visitors. Further information about face coverings in schools is available at www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-in-education.

If they experience any diarrhoea or vomiting, they need to be 48 hours clear of these symptoms before returning. People do not need to access a further test before ending their isolation or returning to work or school.
