COVID 19 INFORMATION

Welcome to the COVID19 section of the BVC website


As the national lockdown has been in effect since the start of this term, we have archived all the details in a document at the side of this page.

In-School Provision

All those in school will be following our current COVID-19 Risk Assessment.

 

If you have any queries concerning in-school provision at this time, please do let us know: enquiries@bottishamvc.org

 

Any updates ot the COVID Table  will be posted as and when there are any changes.

Please note that parents will still receive letters regarding close contact with a positive case but general information letters will only now be sent to all parents of the year group affected.

In order for us to inform our community about the way in which the college is responding to positive cases within the college, please see below a table which we shall endeavour to update periodically.

Symptoms
The symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
• recent onset of new continuous cough or
• high temperature or
• a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia).

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness. If you are concerned about your health or the health of anyone else in your house, please seek advice from your GP or NHS 111 by phoning 111.

There are things you can do to reduce the risk of getting COVID-19:
• wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
• use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
• wash your hands as soon as you get home
• cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
• put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards

What are the Rules on Self Isolation? – a Quick Guide for Parents

A ‘contact’ is a person who has been close to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 anytime from 2 days before the person had symptoms (or a positive test if no symptoms) and up to 10 days from the start of their symptoms (when they are infectious to others). So this means anyone who:

• Is in their household (living together, sharing kitchen or bathroom)
• Has been closer to them than 1m for one minute or longer
• Has been within 2m of them for more than 15 minutes
• Has had face-to-face contact (within 1m), been coughed on or had skin-skin physical contact
• Has travelled in a small vehicle with them, even on a short journey.

You may also find this diagram about actions to take if someone in your household develops Covid 19 symptoms helpful.
