Advice for parents during coronavirus
Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself. Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured.
Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done. Here is some advice to help:
NHS Health Visitors: Health Visitors will be using one central number until further notice, regardless of which GP the child/family are registered with. That number is 01295 277010 Child Friendly Explanation of Coronavirus
Please also see the Public Health Notice for more information.
The children are always taught about good hygiene in school and we have been focussing on the importance of good handwashing and how to reduce the spread of germs.
