Covid-19 Updates

COVID-19 Update October 2021

As you know, due to the vulnerabilities of the children and young people we always go above and beyond in response to keeping everyone safe. We are continually in touch with Worcestershire Local Outbreak Response Team who are happy with the measures we are taking but for now would like us to add the following precaution.
If anyone in the household has symptoms of COVID-19 they should take a PCR test. If the test is positive, they should remain at home and isolate. Household contacts are also recommended to take a PCR test.
Household Contacts
MSF children and MSF staff who are household contacts of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, must stay home and get a PCR test. Staff and children will not be able to come to MSF clubs if they are a household contact of a positive case, until they have a negative PCR test result.
When to stop self-isolating after testing positive
You can stop self-isolating after the 10 days if either:

  • you do not have any symptoms

  • you just have a cough or changes to your sense of smell or taste – these can last for weeks after the infection has gone

When to keep self-isolating after testing positive
If you have a high temperature after the 10 days, or are feeling unwell, keep self-isolating and seek medical advice.
Malvern Special Families continue with extra sanitising and cleaning routines and as ever, I thank you all for your help with this.
