Parents received advice directly today [Monday] to reassure them.
‘We know the confirmation of cases across seven education settings will have understandably caused concern amongst parents and staff,' said Civil Contingencies Authority chair Peter Ferbrache.
'On an island such as ours, education provision is very connected with married staff working across different sites and siblings attending different schools. What is most important right now is for parents and staff to work with us, help protect Public Health’s capacity by not phoning or emailing unless you are symptomatic, and please go about your lives within the current rules in the knowledge that you will be contacted if you’re identified as needing a test.'
Public Health will contact those that need testing directly.
If you do not hear from Public Health you are advised not to instigate testing yourselves unless you are symptomatic.
If you or your children develop symptoms contact the clinical helpline on 756938/756969 in the first instance.
