Coronavirus Update

Latest update 3.15pm

 

Message to schools from Hampshire LA: 

 

Having sought advice from experts from Public Health England (PHE), we can reassure schools that no further action is required and that schools can continue to operate as normal. Should the need arise, PHE will trace anyone who has had close contact with a confirmed case during the infectious period to provide the appropriate health advice. Anyone who has not been contacted directly by PHE should continue to go about their daily routine as normal and is asked to follow the publicly available health guidance at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.
 

The Department for Education has set up a general helpline for educational settings and parents for queries or concerns relating to Coronavirus.

 

 

 

 

Please continue to promote the simple measures school communities can take to reduce the spread of infections, including Coronavirus:

 

•       Washing hands often with soap and water, for a minimum of 20 seconds, especially after using public transport

•       If soap and water is unavailable, using alcohol-based hand sanitiser

•       Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands

•       Catching coughs or sneezes in a tissue. Then bin the tissue, and wash hands, or use a sanitiser gel.

 

For the latest information and advice on the virus, go to www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.
