Omicron Variant

We would like to remind all parents of the importance of getting a PCR test for a child or any family member displaying any of the symptoms of COVID-19. We have recently seen the Omicron variant present in the UK. It would appear transmissibility of the variant is higher than previous COVID-19 variants. Please be extra vigilant with the run up to the school holidays.


The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

If you have any of these symptoms, get a PCR test (test that is sent to a lab) to check if you have coronavirus and stay at home until you get your result, even if the symptoms are mild.
