Symptoms of coronavirus


The symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a new continuous cough

  • a high temperature

  • loss or change to your sense of taste or smell

but these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.

The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu. If you are showing any of these symptoms please immediately arrange for a covid test. You must self isolate for at least 48 hours and until you get a test confirming that you don't have the virus. If you get a positive test you must inform the school and self-isolate for at least 10 days or until symptoms have gone.
