Covid 19

What happens if a child/staff tests positive for COVID-19?



COVID 19 is now classed as an illness, please ensure that you send us a photograph of the positive Lateral Flow Test.  This can be sent via email alway.primary@newportschools.wales or dojo to the Alway Office Team.  This is then recorded on the school register.

 

Providing your child feels well and does not have a temperature, they can return to school on day 4.  Please see below the most recent NHS guidance:  

 

If a Child (18 years of age or under) has a positive Covid-19 test result, they should stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day they took the test.
