Covid Notifications During Christmas Holidays

Once the Christmas holidays start, schools are required to support with track and trace. It is important that everyone is clear about the procedure should a student or staff member test positive in the holidays. If a member of our school community tests positive and symptoms began up to and including Sunday 20 December, school must be notified to support with contact tracing. Please email the dedicated email address which will be monitored until 24 December if you test positive and had symptoms within this time period. The email address that must be used in the Christmas holiday period only is covid@qegs.cumbria.sch.uk If there is a positive case in this time period, and you might be affected, you will be informed by phone, edulink and email.

If symptoms began any time from Monday 21December onwards, families/staff are asked to follow the instructions given by NHS track and trace and the school does not need to be contacted over the holiday period. You should inform us of any self-isolation required before the Inset day via Caroline Brammer as normal. Please copy me into this as well.

Mr Paul Buckland
