Coronavirus (COVID-19): implementing social distancing in education and childcare settings

Guidance on social distancing for everyone in the UK

The Government announced that we are moving from the Contain phase
of the coronavirus action plan and into the Delay phase, in response to the ongoing
COVID-19 outbreak.
Full details of each stage in the government action plan can be found here:
To support the delay of the spread of the virus, the Department for Health and Social
Care has asked anyone who shows certain symptoms to stay at home and avoid all but
essential contact with others for 7 days.
The symptoms are:
A high temperature (37.8 degrees and above)
A new, continuous cough
You do not need to call NHS 111 to stay at home. If your symptoms worsen during
your stay at home period or are no better after 7 days contact NHS 111 online at or call NHS 111.

The government has given clear guidance to limit the chance of the COVID-19 virus spreading.

The government has asked parents to keep their children at home, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.

The fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.
