I hope all our Fellgate families are feeling well?
Just a reminder regarding COVID-19.
If anyone in your household shows any of the following symptoms…
A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:
Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.
Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.
Your child will need to return to school if the test if negative. If the test is positive, please inform school and follow Government advice.
Further information can be found here…
You can get further advice by dialling 119.
