Following a recent change in Government guidelines, please note that should there be a positive case in your household, then the whole household must now isolate for the full 10 days regardless of age, vaccination status or a negative PCR test result.
Previously siblings with a negative PCR test were allowed to attend their childcare / school setting, however this is no longer permitted.
We ask as the holidays approach that everyone remains as cautious as possible, following all of the recommended guidelines, and that face coverings continue to be worn by all adults at drop off / pick up, unless medical reasons prevent this being possible.
Thank you for your continued support and vigilance.
AUGUST 2021 - PROCEDURAL INFORMATION
Should a confirmed case of COVID-19 (coronavirus) be reported in a person linked to Compass Playgroup, all close contacts of the case who need to take specific actions will be identified as a matter of urgency. Further procedural information can be obtained from the Scottish Government's Warn and Inform: Information sheet
Compass Playgroup will notify all parents/carers, even those not considered to be a close contact, should we become aware of any linked confirmed cases, asking that everyone be particularly vigilant for symptoms.
It is critical that staff, parents and carers be aware of the symptoms of COVID-19, and understand what actions should be taken if someone develops them, either onsite or offsite. No-one should attend Compass if at all symptomatic. Anyone who develops symptoms must self-isolate straight away, stay at home and arrange a test via the appropriate method.
The key COVID-19 symptoms are:
· new continuous cough
· fever/high temperature
· loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste (anosmia).
We are delighted to be able to confirm that following the continued suppression of the coronavirus figures, the Scottish Government and our regulatory authorities have confirmed that early learning and childcare settings can re-open to all pre-school children from Monday 22nd February.
This is fantastic news for us all and we look forward to welcoming all of our Compass children back soon.
Please can we just quickly remind you that we must all still adhere to social distancing rules at drop off and pick up times, and that all adults must wear a face mask unless there is a medical reason that prevents this.
Thank you for your continued co-operation and understanding.
