Coronavirus Guidance

Check if you or your child has coronavirus symptoms:

 

Main symptoms

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

 

What to do if you have symptoms

If you have 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.

Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.

DO

DON’T

 

 

 

Set a simple routine but take your time with the changes.

Expect your child to accept/adapt these changes immediately

Try to teach your child – there are lots of life skills that can now be imbedded in our children.

Try to be a subject teacher! There are plenty of life lessons that parents can teach.

Spend time together as a family

Push for more than usual, you can take your time to give the children the chance to adapt!

Expect tantrums!

Let those tantrums get you down! Take a breath. These are scary times for everyone, even adults are struggling but we have the maturity to deal with them.

Spend time apart! It is important you find, even a small space, for your own thoughts.

Worry if others need to do the same. Personal space is important.

Create a set of ground rules. How you can/can’t speak to each other. The need for MUTUAL respect (in appropriate age speak!)

Expect these rules to be followed 100% straight away. It takes us all time to get used to new things.

See the positives – what a fantastic opportunity to instil real family values into our children in a way we didn’t have the opportunity to do before.

Focus on what we can’t do. There are ways we can help others in new and unusual ways!

Remember every child will probably respond differently to this situation

Expect every child in the same age bracket to respond the same.

Focus on you and your family, your timetables, your way of working needs to suit the people in your house.

Compare how your family are responding to anyone else’s. We are all different and have different needs.
