Dear Parents and carers,
Yesterday the government travel advice for Italy was upgraded so that the whole of Italy (including Sardinia and Sicily), and not just Northern Italy, is now a Category 2 country.
This means that any pupils or parents and carers who have visited anywhere in Italy since February 19 and they develop flu-like symptoms, should self-isolate and phone the NHS 111 number.
Just to reiterate that this is a fast moving situation and this travel advice is correct at the time of writing. We will continue to update you as advice changes.
