It is important that you talk to your parents, teachers or carers if you are worried about covid. We are all working together to be as safe as we possibly can and you can play your part by remembering to do everything you are asked when you are at school and at home.
There will be some new rules at school which may be difficult to deal with at times but it does mean that we can all work together to keep each other safe and well.
- Always wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds (or the length of two “Happy Birthday” songs) when you come in from outside, before you eat, and after blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing or using the bathroom.
- Follow the rules that your teachers, parents and carers give you. These can change depending on the information that the government have, so be prepared to be flexible if sometimes the rules are stricter than before.
- If you feel poorly at any time, let your teacher, parents or carer know right away.

Here is a link to a book about covid that will help you understand a bit more about it.
