Italy and Coronavirus – latest information

 

Please visit this link for the latest Government advice about the coronavirus and Italy.
There is a lot of information on there but the key section for us is Section 9 as the pupils that went on the half-term ski trip travelled from a Category 2 area. This section states:

WHAT TO DO IF A PUPIL, STUDENT OR STAFF MEMBER HAS TRAVELLED FROM A CATEGORY 2 SPECIFIED COUNTRY/AREA IN THE LAST 14 DAYS

If they are currently well:
  • they are advised to self-isolate only if they develop symptoms
  • they can continue to attend work or education
  • they do not need to avoid contact with other people
  • their family do not need to take any precautions or make any changes to their own activities
  • testing people with no symptoms for COVID-19 is currently not recommended
  • it is useful to always take a mobile phone with them when they go out so that they can contact others if they do become unwell
If they become unwell:
  • they should stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as they would with other flu viruses (see this home isolation advice sheet).
  • they (or a family member, colleague or member of staff) should call NHS 111 immediately for them to be assessed by an appropriate specialist, as quickly as possible
  • they should stay at home and should not attend work or education
  • they should not go directly to their GP or other healthcare environment
  • if they require emergency medical attention, call 999 and tell the call handler or ambulance control that the person has a history of recent travel to risk areas for COVID-19
The map below shows the area that the ski trip visited – Valle d’Aosta. This is approximately 100 miles from the edge of the Lombardy region and even further from the Veneto region, which are the two regions affected. The schools that have shut in Cheshire went skiing in Bormio, which is in the Veneto region.
Please also see the attached press releases from Interski and the regional government of the Aosta Valley, which will hopefully alleviate concerns.

We will continue to update parents and carers with information as we receive it.
