COVID-19: guidance for education settings
Updated 16 March 2020
If anyone at school, teacher or pupil, becomes unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature in an education setting they will be sent home and advised to follow the staying at home guidance.
If you need clinical advice, go online to NHS 111 (or call 111). In an emergency, call 999 if they are seriously ill or injured or their life is at risk. Do not visit the GP, pharmacy, urgent care centre or a hospital.
If there is an urgent public health action to take, the educational setting will be contacted by the local Public Health England Health Protection Team who will undertake a risk assessment and advise on any actions or precautions that should be taken. PHE will rarely advise a school to close but this may be necessary if there are so many staff being isolated that the school has operational issues.
