Coronavirus (Covid-19)

We are operating in accordance with government guidance and will review and update our procedures as the situation changes.

Information About the Virus

A coronavirus is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.


As a community setting we will take action to:

  • Identify possible cases as soon as possible.

  • Isolate to prevent transmission to children, families and staff.

  • Avoid direct physical contact unless wearing appropriate personal protective equipment.

  • Keep abreast by checking the Public Health Wales website for the latest advice.

 

Infection Control

 

Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 should not attend the setting but will need to start a period of self-isolation and arrange a test.

 

If a child in our care becomes symptomatic, we will care for the child away from other children and we will contact parents immediately to collect their child. 

 

Please ensure that you inform us of any changes to contact details.   In the event of a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case associated with the setting, we will need to use your contact details to enable tracing, by providing information to a Test Track Protect enquiry. 

Please help us to protect all children and staff by following this guidance:

  • Carry tissues and use them to catch coughs and sneezes

  • Bin tissues

  • To kill the germs, wash hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.

 

Hand Hygiene is imperative, so please watch the NHS video which demonstrates how to thoroughly wash your hands.
