    This is government guidance: https://web.archive.org/web/2020052...idance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19
    Really concerned about this part:

    If a member of staff has helped someone who was taken unwell with coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, they do not need to go home unless they develop symptoms themselves. They should wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds after any contact with someone who is unwell. Cleaning the area with normal household disinfectant after someone with symptoms has left will reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.

    so this means we will be working with people who have been exposed....

    I supppse it’s only referring to someone with symptoms - once someone tests positive then the whole track and trace/isolation rules would kick in. Isolating everyone who is near someone with a cough/temperature in a school would send a lot of people home quickly. I have no idea if it is a good policy though.
