Letter for parents about COVID-19 symptoms

Letter for parents about COVID-19 symptoms

Public Health England has produced a letter for parents which explains when a person requires a coronavirus test and what the symptoms of coronavirus are.

The intention of the letter is to help prevent children from being taken out of school unnecessarily and answer some of the questions parents may have around testing.

You can download the letter here along with our Covid-19 FAQs.

Cheaper travel is available for all under 16s living in South Yorkshire with a MegaTravel Pass. MegaTravellers can travel in South Yorkshire for a single fare of 80p per journey on buses or trams. They can also buy discounted 1, 7 or 28 day tickets, which are loaded onto the pass, which might be cheaper if they travel regularly. Under 16s travelling without a valid pass may be charged full fare, so even if your pupils are not travelling on public transport right now, we’re encouraging early application so they’re ready to go in September. The pass proves a child is eligible to travel for the concessionary fare on public transport in South Yorkshire.

Instructions on how to apply for a MegaTravel Pass are available at https://www.travelsouthyorkshire.com/megatravel
