Coronavirus Guidelines

Dear Parents,

As you are aware the health and well being of all our staff, parents and children are extremely important to us.

As with any health concerns, we want to ensure we are minimising the impact and reducing the possibility of exposure in appropriate ways within our nursery.

Please note that individuals who have symptoms of COVID-19 must not come into nursery and they must contact the nursery manager.

We require the individual to remain out of the child care setting for 14 days following the last potential exposure. If at the end of this 14-day period, the individual has not experienced any symptoms, the individual may return to the child care setting. If the individual does experience symptoms during that 14-day period, the individual will need to obtain medical clearance before returning to the child care setting.

“Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties”

Public Health Advice – Returning Travellers

Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people if you’ve travelled to the UK from the following places in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath, even if your symptoms are mild:

Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do next.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call your GP or NHS 24 on 111 out of hours.

As you are aware our main priority is the health and well being of our community, including the nursery children, their families and colleagues. The guidance from Public Health England / Wales / Scotland continues to evolve, sometimes on a daily basis, therefore if you have plans to travel to any specified areas:

  • Can you please let the manager know about your travel plans, including if you have recently returned from any of the specified areas in category 1 or 2

  • As the advice can sometimes change on a daily basis we would appreciate it if you could call NHS 111 on your return, before you come back to the nursery, just to check that the advice you received before you went is still relevant and hasn’t changed during your time away.

  • Please then provide an update either via a phone call or email to the nursery.

  • Thank you for being supportive and considerate in this manner.
