Coronavirus Update

25th January 2021

Expansion of testing

As you are aware, individuals who have any of the three main Covid-19 symptoms (high temperature, new, continuous cough, loss or change of taste or sense of smell) must self-isolate (stay at home) immediately and book a Covid-19 test.


However, there are also a number of other, wider symptoms (see table below), which may be linked to Covid-19 infection, although these symptoms are also common in a number of other illnesses.

Dudley Council’s Public Health team and the school are keen to make sure we are doing all we can to prevent any further cases and are therefore recommending that all children and staff in education settings get a Covid-19 test as a precaution if they display any of these wider symptoms. Details of how to book a test are included in the letter below.

Sore Throat

Extreme Tiredness



*Diarrhoea (must be clear of symptoms for 48hrs before returning to school)

Joint Pain or Muscle Ache

**Vomiting (must be clear of symptoms for 48hrs before returning to school)
