Update re Andover Case of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) - Monday 9th March 3:20 pm

Local schools have received this message from Public Health Hampshire:

 

Following the closure of Andover Leisure Centre yesterday, which has now reopened, we understand that schools have taken different approaches in relation to staff and pupils who have visited the Centre.

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.

For the latest information and advice on the virus, go to www.nhs.uk/coronavirus or Department for Education has set up a general helpline for educational settings and parents for queries or concerns relating to Coronavirus.

We think this means that we can return to normal. Many thanks for everyone's support with this, it is much appreciated. It was an interesting 24 hours! :-)

Update re Andover Case of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) - Monday 9th March 9:15 am

Thank you for your patience with this news.

One of the problems is we, as local headteachers, are being given conflicting advice via the NHS 111 number and the dedicated Department for Education advice line. We are trying to clarify it today and will update parents when we know.

At the moment we are remaining with the advice we were given yesterday and we sent to parents via email. We have copied it below.

 

 
Dear parents/carers,
As you may be aware Andover Leisure Centre has been closed over the weekend after a confirmed case of someone testing positive for the Coronavirus (Covid19).
As a precaution we have contacted PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND and thought we would share their recommendations. The advice is essentially the same as was previously the case so there is no need to worry.
If your child has attended the leisure centre and feels unwell they should stay off school as a precaution and contact 111. 
If your child has attended the leisure centre but are fine they are okay to attend school. (if they feel unwell in near future then stay off and contact 111) 
Best wishes,
Tim Deery
