Continuing to keep our children safe:

As we learn to live safely with coronavirus (COVID-19), there are actions we can all take to help reduce the risk of catching COVID-19 and passing it on to others. These actions will also help to reduce the spread of other respiratory infections, such as flu, which can spread easily.

  • We are spending as much time as possible in our large open spaces
  • When we are inside, we are increasing ventilation
  • We are ensuring a continued focus on thorough and frequent cleaning, along with increased handwashing and sanitising
  • If you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as COVID-19, and you have a high temperature or do not feel well enough to go to work or carry out normal activities, you are advised to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
