Self-Isolation reduces from 14 days to 10 days

URGENT UPDATE - Following Government Announcement

You may have heard already about the updated guidance around self-isolation, which comes into effect on Monday 14th. Please note that the new guidance applies to people already self-isolating from before that date.

Self-Isolation reduces from 14 days to 10 days, starting from the first whole day. The updated guidance states that "self-isolation periods will begin on the day after exposure, a test or the start of symptoms."

For example, if your child was told at school on 3rd December that they need to self-isolate, or they first experienced symptoms on that day, they will have started their first full day of self-isolation on 4th December. Their last day at home would be 13th December, and so they should return to school on Monday 14th December. For example, 7 Chandos are now due in school on Monday!
