Guidance for children returning to School

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has issued detailed guidance about children returning to school, including symptoms of covid and common colds. The summary of the advice is:

From this available evidence we believe that children with simple cold symptoms such as coryzal symptoms (runny noses) or sore throats without fever who would normally have attended schools in other times should not be tested for COVID-19.

This is in agreement with current PHE guidance for deciding when to test. These symptoms are:

  • new continuous cough
  • fever/high temperature
  • loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste.

Following this guidance allows the identification of children most likely to be infected and help detect any emerging outbreak.
