What To Do If You Have Symptoms

Anyone – pupil or staff member – who believes they may have symptoms of COVID-19, or is notified that they are a confirmed case of coronavirus, must stay at home self-isolating, following the guidance found here.

  • If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, OR you have received a positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test result, the clear medical advice is to immediately self-isolate at home for at least seven days from when your symptoms started. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
  • You should arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19 if you haven’t already – visit this website to arrange.
  • Consider alerting the people that you have had close contact within the last 48 hours to let them know you have symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Following a positive test result, you will receive a request by text, email or phone to log into the NHS Test and Trace service website and provide information about recent close contacts.

A headteacher receiving notification from a pupil or staff member should contact Public Health England, Sussex Health Protection Team:
