Christmas Holiday Period COVID-19 Track and Trace
Dear Parents/ Carers,
If your child shows symptoms of Covid-19 within 48 hours of the end of the school term, or tests positive for Covid-19 having shown symptoms within 48 hours of the end of school term, you MUST report this to Lancashire County Council immediately by emailing COVID19educationquestions@lancashire.gov.uk or calling 01772 531555.
Staff will be on hand to notify any other pupils in your child's bubble and their families so they can self-isolate for ten days. It is vital you tell the county council about any positive tests so we can help prevent the spread of coronavirus in our community.
If the date of the positive test is Saturday 19th December or Sunday 20th December, their class bubble will be informed and told to self-isolate for 10 days. Parents and Carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.
If the date of the positive test result is after Sunday 20th December, the class bubble will not be informed as the 48 contagious period will not be applicable.
If your child becomes unwell and tests positive in the second week of the Christmas holidays, PLEASE DO NOT SEND THEM TO SCHOOL ON MONDAY 4th JANUARY.
Contact Lancashire County Council and you will be advised of a return date.
Thank you in anticipation of your co-operation,
Miss R Musa
