Covid 19 Information
Please see information below regarding current COVID guidance.
Children under eighteen should not be tested for Covid unless recommended by a professional. If a child has symptoms, is tested and has a positive result, they are recommended to isolate for three days. The following extract is taken from the DfE guidance for schools and parents.
It is not recommended that children and young people are tested for COVID-19 unless directed to by a health professional.
Children and young people aged 18 years and under who have a positive test result:
If a child or young person has a positive COVID-19 test result they should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day they took the test, if they can. After 3 days, if they feel well and do not have a high temperature, the risk of passing the infection on to others is much lower. This is because children and young people tend to be infectious to other people for less time than adults.

At Nonsuch, we do not require children to remain at home unless they are unwell as is the case with any other infection.
