On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April. The COVID-19 specific operational guidance for schools has now been withdrawn from GOV.UK although the UKHSA has published new and updated guidance for the general population, which will also be relevant to education and childcare settings, and includes:
- Reducing the spread of respiratory infections, including COVID-19, in the workplace.
- Guidance for people with symptoms of a respiratory infection including COVID-19, or a positive test result for COVID-19
- Living safely with respiratory infections, including COVID-19
- COVID-19 guidance for people whose immune system means they are at higher risk
