What should you do if you feel unwell?
Keep away from others and stay at home to stop the infection spreading. Avoid public transport if you think you have symptoms of coronavirus. If you become unwell at a place of education, tell a member of staff and let them know if you have travelled to any other countries in the last 14 days.
If your staff member or parent thinks you have symptoms of coronavirus, they should call NHS 111 for advice.
