Please find below a document prepared by NHS Lothian that aims to clarify specific questions and concerns that have been raised by parents and carers over the past few weeks.
I would like to emphasise that a young person should not attend school if they have any of the following COVID-19 symptoms.
- A new, continuous cough and/or
- A fever/ high temperature and/or
- A change or loss in taste and/or smell
Note: A new, continuous cough means coughing for longer than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours. If you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual.
