Important update – 10/11/2020

Message from East Craigs Primary School Head Teacher and NHS Lothian

We are aware of a person in the school who has tested positive for COVID-19.  We understand that this is a worrying time but would like to reassure you that we are working closely with NHS Lothian Health Protection Team and following all national guidance.

A number of people are currently being contacted because they may have been in close and sustained contact with the case and will need to self-isolate.  They will be given appropriate guidance and advise.

An update via text will be sent to you as soon as the tracking and tracing is complete.

If you are not contacted directly to tell you your child is a close contact, then your child should attend school as normal.

Enhanced cleaning and infection control measures are in place in line with national guidance.  The school is safe and remains open.

If you have any concerns in the meantime, or if you need to book a COVID-19 test because your child has developed symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste) please visit the NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scot or for non-clinical advice call 0800 028 2816.

Please note that a test should only be booked if you or your child has these specific symptoms.

Remember to stay at home if anyone in the household has symptoms of COVID-19.
