Unfortunately, we have received confirmation that a student in Crew Mosley in Y7/G28 has tested positive for Covid19 via PCR test.
NHS Track and Trace may get in touch with some parents as they are the organisation for helping the student to identify close contacts – they may advise the identified contacts to have a PCR test. As per the revised guidelines, children under 18 and 6 months and adults who have been double jabbed no longer need to isolate.
The document that we use at school to support all operational matters surrounding Covid19 states that those children who are close contacts should continue to go to school as normal (unless they have symptoms):
‘Staff who do not need to isolate, and children and young people aged under 18 years 6 months who usually attend school, and have been identified as a close contact, should continue to attend school as normal.’
The following document provides additional useful information: ‘Guidance for contacts of a person with a positive test result for coronavirus (COVID-19) who do not live with that person.’
Thanks for your support in testing at home. It is much appreciated.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
