COVID-19 | Advice for Rising Cases

This article is brought to you by Slough Borough Council's School Health & Wellbeing Project Officer, Susan Dyer on behalf of Public Health. This is for the attention of all education professionals to share with families.

If you or someone in your household has COVID-19 (Coronavirus) symptoms

The person with symptoms must self isolate (stay at home )for 10 days. Everyone else in the household must self isolate for 14 days, unless they get symptoms, then it’s 10 days from when the symptoms started.

Hands, Face and Space

Wash your hands often

With soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Wear a face covering

On public transport, in indoor public spaces, in other places where social distancing is difficult or not possible.

Keep your distance

When you are outside your home or meeting people you do not live with or who are not in your support ‘bubble’. You should be 2 metres apart where possible - 1 metre plus when not possible.

Rule of 6

When meeting friends and family you do not live with (or have formed a support bubble with) you must not meet in a group of more than 6, indoors or outdoors.
