LA Public Health Guidance

Thank you for all the hard work in managing your responses to the pandemic. We are still here to support you with any questions you may have – just complete an enquiry form here and we will get back to you as soon as we can

When a positive case is confirmed, you no longer need to identify ‘close contacts’ of the case, this is now the responsibility of NHS Test and Trace.  Close contacts do not need to isolate as long as one of the following criteria is met:

  • you are fully vaccinated
  • you are below the age of 18 years 6 months
  • you have taken part in or are currently part of an approved COVID-19 vaccine trial
  • you are not able to get vaccinated for medical reasons

NHS Test and Trace will be in touch with close contacts to advise them to take a PCR test.  This is advisory, not mandatory, but we would recommend following all advice given by NHS Test and Trace.  On rare occasions, NHS Test and Trace may contact your school to help them identify close contacts of a positive case.

Households of Positive Cases 

The households of positive cases do not need to isolate as long as one of the following criteria is met:

  • you are fully vaccinated
  • you are below the age of 18 years 6 months
  • you have taken part in or are currently part of an approved COVID-19 vaccine trial
  • you are not able to get vaccinated for medical reasons
