If a child is suspected to be ill and is awaiting collection, our staff members will find a suitable room where they can be isolated away from the other children taking part in the sessions. Depending on the age of the child the correct adult supervision will be maintained by our staff at all times.
If children need to go to the bathroom while waiting to be collected, they will be escorted to a different bathroom that is being used by the other children where possible. The bathroom used will then be cleaned and disinfected using standard cleaning products before being used by anyone else.
Where the child, young person or staﬀ member tests positive, the rest of their class or group within their childcare or education setting will be sent home and advised to self-isolate for 10 days.
