Message from East Craigs Primary School Head Teacher and NHS Lothian

As you may already know, we are aware of a person in the school who has tested positive for COVID-19.  We have been working closely with NHS Lothian Health Protection Team and following all national guidance.

A number of people have now been contacted because they have been in close and sustained contact with the case and the tracking process is now complete. These contacts will need to self-isolate and appropriate guidance and advise has been given.

If you have not been 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 at 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 NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scot or for non-clinical advise 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.
