Q: My eldest son has been sent home from school today due to a confirmed test for Covid in his bubble. Should I keep my younger son at home?

A: The rest of the household does not need to self-isolate, unless they have also been identified as a 'close contact' of sometime with a positive result.

Q: Should I get my child tested?

A: You should only get a test if your child has symptoms which include a high temperature (hot to touch front and back), a new continuous cough and/or a loss of taste or smell.

Q: Is it the case that the school is required to do an individual risk assessment where a child lives with a vulnerable family member?

A: The school is not required to complete a risk assessment where a child lives with a vulnerable family member as this would require medical expertise. Instead we would advise you to contact your GP and share any information that was required. For those living with vulnerable family members it is imperative that guidelines are also followed outside of school. Within school there is a risk assessment which we continue to review.

Q: If one member of the family has a positive result, what is the likelihood the rest of the family will test positive?

A: We do not have the scentific expertise to answer this question with specificity. What is important is that the whole family self isolate for 10 days if one person has symptoms or is positive.
