Can I go to school?


  • Children can still go to school if they have mild symptoms like a runny nose, sore throat or slight cough.


  • If they have a temperature or are unwell the advice is for them to stay at home and avoid contact with others where possible – they can return to school when they are well enough and don’t have a temperature.


  • Testing isn’t recommended – but if they test positive, they should stay at home for 3 days.
