Protocol outside schools
Protocol outside schoolsLast update: 25/05/2022
- There is no longer a requirement to stay home unless symptomatic
- A PCR or antigen test should be taken on day 2 or 3 (children under 12 years of age and those with a contraindication that means they cannot take a nasopharyngeal sample should take a saliva PCR test)
- A positive test means that the individual will need to self-isolate for 7 days from the onset of symptoms or from the date of the positive PCR test if asymptomatic. Individuals may return to work or school on day 7 only if they have not had a fever or breathing difficulties in the last 48 hours.
