Public health doctors are available to liaise with schools and advise on precautions if staff and / or students have any concerns.

Anyone who has visited affected regions in the last 14 days and has a cough, shortness of breath, breathing difficulties or fever should self-isolate and phone their GP immediately.

The most important action we can take to protect ourselves from Covid-19 is regular hand-washing and good respiratory hygiene.
