Jason Leitch (National Clinical Director) has written to all parents/carers:
"To Parents, Carers and Young People, As I’ve tried to do throughout the pandemic, I wanted to share the latest advice about the way we are managing Covid-19. From Sunday 1 May, public health advice will change to a ‘stay at home’ message and replace self-isolation for people who have symptoms or have tested positive for Covid-19. As a result, people who have symptoms of Covid-19 and who have a fever or are too unwell to carry out normal activities will be asked to stay at home while they are unwell or have a fever. They will no longer be advised to take a PCR test. These changes will also see testing for the general population and most contact tracing end on 30 April."
