NI’s chief medic writes to parents with Covid-19 advice
It outlines actions which should be taken by parents and carers if children develop Covid-19 symptoms.
It is being issued alongside a leaflet for parents/carers produced by the Department of Education, with advice on the steps to take if a child, or anyone they live with, develops symptoms.
The information contained in the Department of Education’s ‘Information for Parents and Carers’ leaflet includes the actions to be taken if: a child develops Covid-19 symptoms; a child is tested positive for Covid-19; another household member has Covid-19 symptoms; another household member tests positive for Covid-19 symptoms.
The leaflet can be accessed at www.education-ni.gov.uk/publications/leaflet-information-parents-and-carers
