Covid Update: Public Health Agency advice to Schools

10th Sep 2021

Further advice this morning from DE and PHA:

From Friday 10th September 2021, when the PHA Contact Tracing Service (CTS) contacts a confirmed COVID-19 case associated with a school (either a pupil or staff member), they will ask for their support (or that of their parent or guardian) in identifying their close contacts.


Those identified as close contacts by this process will be contacted by the PHA CTS by phone or text, advised they have been identified as a close contact and directed to advice on self-isolation and testing
(https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/coronavirus-covid-19-self-isolating).

Parents will be encouraged to inform the school of their child’s positive test or identification as a close contact as part of routine absence reporting.
