Statement for parents and carers
As you will be aware, there has been a lot of information in the news about
returning trips to Italy over half term in light of the recent measures put in place
by the Italian Authorities on Coronavirus.
We would like to assure you that there is no cause for concern, none of the
school trips run by Hertfordshire schools were within the ten towns which the
Italian Authorities have put on quarantine measures and Hertfordshire
residents remain at low risk.
If you have returned from the quarantined towns and develop flu like
symptoms, please stay at home, avoid contact with other people and call
Taking basic hygiene precautions remains the best way to reduce the chances
of spreading any virus: sneeze or cough into a tissue, bin it, wash your hands
frequently and don’t touch your face unless you’ve just washed your
hands. Using a normal detergent to clean the surfaces people touch regularly
like door handles and lift buttons is also sensible.
