COVID FAQs - 1st April 2022
Q1. Should my child still go to their childcare or education setting if they test positive for Covid? No
‘From 1 April, anyone with a positive COVID-19 test result will be advised to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for five days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice will be three days.’
The UK Government states, ‘You will not be legally required to self-isolate if you test positive for COVID-19 from 1 April’.
Q3. Can my child get a Covid-19 vaccine?
From April, healthy 5-11 year olds will also be offered the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccinations will take place outside of schools in vaccination centres, pharmacies, GPs and walk-in centres. Parents of 5-11 year olds will receive a letter from the NHS with further information. Online bookings for 5-11 year olds will open in April.
