At the time of writing, the risk to individuals to the UK of contracting Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the UK remains moderate. But it is becoming clear that measures being taken to contain the virus may have an impact on many schools. Government guidance is being issued and updated as the situation develops.
We recommend that staff and pupils who intend to return to school after visiting other countries which are subject to the guidance issued by the FCO, self isolate if they have any symptoms and ring NHS 111 for further medical guidance. These countries now include Northern Italy.
