If your child develops symptoms, you should arrange a test right away. If they are at home, keep them there for at least ten days (or until a negative test result comes back). If your child is at school and develops symptoms, they will be sent home for at least ten days.
Other people in your household will need to isolate with them for at least 14 days and be tested too.
Currently, positive test results for Covid-19 happen in less than one per cent of cases, and this number is falling.
If you are being tested, you should support NHS Test and Trace with their contact tracing to protect our schools and communities.
