My child is unwell - is it Covid?
The main symptoms are:
Please be aware that with nearly all the positive cases at school initial symptoms have presented as a headache.
If in doubt get a test. You can get a PCR test to confirm if it is Covid here: www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
There are local test sites you can choose from, or if easier, you can get a test sent to you by post. At the test centre you will be advised to isolate until you get the test results.
Please note, a Lateral Flow Test should not be used to confirm Covid in a child with symptoms.
