What do I do if my child is displaying symptoms?

If your child or family member is showing any symptoms of COVID-19:

  • Coronavirus icon A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • Coronavirus icon A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • Coronavirus icon A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you have noticed that you cannot smell or taste anything, of things smell or taste different to normal


If you or your child has any of the main symptoms of Coronavirus:

  1. Get a test to check if you have Coronavirus as soon as possible
  2. Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test
  3. Anyone you live with and anyone in your support bubble must also stay at home until you get your result. Let the Nursery know as soon as possible why your child(ren) are not attending and keep the Nursery up-to-date on the results of any tests, as we may need to contact our Public Health Team
  4. Should your child or family member receive a positive test result, whilst not experiencing symptoms during the isolation period, you should restart the 10-day isolation period from the day you develop symptoms
  5. Other members of the household (including any siblings) should self-isolate for 14 days from when the symptomatic person first has symptoms
  6. In all cases where a test result has been returned as positive, please inform the Nursery as soon as possible

If you have any concerns or worries about your child attending Nursery, please do not hesitate to contact us, as we would always want to improve matters by developing strong and supportive relationships between the Nursery and Parents/Carers in the first instance.

Please read the following information carefully. It explains what to do if your child or someone else in your household develops COVID-19 symptoms
