Covid 19 – contact over the Christmas Holiday Period

December 2020

Over the Christmas holiday period it is still important that we maintain contact with families who attend Abington Pre-School and GAPS (Abington Community out of School Club) for the purposes of Test and Trace procedures. 

Therefore, we would ask:

  • Where a child tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms more than 48 hours since being in our setting, the setting should not be contacted. Parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.
  • If a child tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms within 48 hours of being in our setting, we are asked to assist in identifying close contacts and advising self-isolation, as the individual may have been infectious whilst in our setting.
  • If a child tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), whilst being asymptomatic, within 48 hours of being in our setting, we are asked to assist in identifying close contacts and advising self-isolation, as the individual may have been infectious whilst in our setting.

If your child tests positive for coronavirus (COVID -19) over the Christmas period and their symptoms started within 48 hours of last attending our setting, or they are asymptomatic and the test was within 48 hours of being in our setting, please will you notify us as soon as possible on 07547 472325 – Ruth.

If you will not be available on your usual contact number over the Christmas period, please will you notify us of the best way to contact you.

Thank you
