What to do if you have symptoms?

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

  • Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
  • Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.
  • Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.

Please see the documents below which provide a guide to pupil absence, where to go for medical advice and treatment and what happens in the testing process.
