Check if you or your child has coronavirus symptoms

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home until you get the result.

Main symptoms

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

 

What to do if you have symptoms

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

  1. Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
  2. Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.

Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.

 

 Non-Classical Symptoms

You are now able to book a COVID-19 test for your child/ren who attend our school if they feel unwell with ‘non-classical’ COVID-19 symptoms. While we know a lot of people are more likely to catch winter viruses at this time of year, in Salford we still want to rule out the possibility of COVID-19 and encourage primary and secondary age pupils to get tested.

 

Non-classical symptoms include:

 

  • Vomiting/nausea/off your food
  • Diarrhoea
  • Sleeping more than usual/extreme tiredness
  • Listless/restless/agitated
  • Shortness of breath
  • Feeling cold
  • Headache
  • Severe body aches
  • Sore throat
  • Congested or runny nose
  • Skin rash
  • Complaining of anything that is not feeling themselves

To book a test please visit www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test  and, when prompted, click the box “My local council has asked me to get a test, even though I do not have symptoms”

Risk Assessment

Implementations to reduce the risk of children contracting and commuting the Covid-19 virus are in place.  These are outlined in the risk assessment.  If you are concerned or worried about your child returning to school please don't hesitate to speak to a member of staff.
