Norovirus advice for children and parents
If you become unwell, please do not return to school.
Plenty of fluids – Dioralyte or flat coke or lemonade can help to replace fluid and mineral loss. Rehydration is the most important aspect of recovery.
Where possible, allocate separate bathroom facilities for the affected person, or clean down well after the infected person.
Wipe down door handles, keyboards, remotes – anywhere the potential for cross-infection lurks.
Ensure good hygiene practices and frequent hand washing.
Please stay away from school until you have been free from all symptoms for at least 48 hours. This is imperative to avoid an epidemic.
If you continue to feel unwell and you are concerned telephone your family doctor.
