Visiting Penn Wood
If you are visiting or planning a visit to Penn Wood Primary & Nursery School and have been in any Category 1 areas (click on the maps below) of China, Iran, Italy or South Korea during the previous 14 days, could we ask that you email email@example.com or call 01753 521 811 to rearrange your visit for a later date.
As a school, we are asking our entire community to follow specific government advice for Category 1 and Category 2 areas, which is as follows:
· Category 1: Travellers from here should self-isolate regardless, even if asymptomatic, and call NHS 111 to inform of recent travel.
· Category 2: Travellers from here do not need to undertake any special measures, but—given that the virus has a 14-day incubation period—should they or any member of the family become unwell, specifically with a cough or fever, then they should all self-isolate and call NHS 111.
(Category 2 countries/areas are: Cambodia, China*, Hong Kong, Italy*, Japan, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Republic of Korea*, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam)
*except areas of these countries specifically referred to in Category 1
