We have spoken to Manchester Public Health for updates on COVID isolation if a child tests positive.
They have advised the following:
- If a child or young person has a positive COVID-19 test result they should stay at home for 3 days and keep away from people.
- If they feel well and have no temperature after 3 days, the risk of giving COVID-19 to someone else is
low, and they can return to school.
We are therefore going to follow this advice from now on (I must stress that case rates remain low in school though) and I attach an easy to read booklet for your future guidance.
