Government Coronavirus Action Plan

The Department for Education has written a document which sets out what the UK as a whole has done to tackle the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and what it plans to do next.

 

The action plan can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-action-plan

 

The document includes:

  • what we know about the virus and the disease it causes
  • how we have planned for an infectious disease outbreak, such as the current coronavirus outbreak
  • the actions we have taken so far in response to the current coronavirus outbreak
  • what we are planning to do next, depending upon the course the current coronavirus outbreak takes
  • the role the public can play in supporting this response, now and in the future

 

Current advice remains in place: No school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless advised to do so by Public Health England.

 

Department for Education Coronavirus helpline
We have a helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

The importance of hygiene
Personal hygiene is the most important way we can tackle COVID-19, especially washing hands more; and the catch it, bin it, kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes.
