Message from the Health Board

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have been asked by the Local Authority to pass this message on to the school community.

Common cold? It could be Covid! Covid-19 cases are rising in young people in Swansea Bay area. Symptoms can now mimic a common cold – so if your child (or you) have symptoms, please get tested.

We have been informed that:

  1. Although there is no requirement to self isolate, anyone displaying a cold symptom should air on the side of caution and stay at home whilst waiting for the test result.
  2. Those who generally suffer at this time of year with hay fever and/or sinus related issues do not need to take repeated tests if their symptoms are expected and are within levels the individual usually suffers from.
  3. This does not, of course, apply to the classic Covid symptoms of a continuous cough, fever or loss of taste, which must initiate an immediate self-isolation and PCR test.
