Hertfordshire Updates

Information for parents and carers

Police have received reports of lack of social distancing and complacency around face coverings at school drop off and pick up times.

We all have a responsibility to take steps in helping reduce the spread of coronavirus. With this in mind, all families are required (unless exempt) to adhere to the following points to ensure a safe arrival and departure at school for all involved:

  • Only one parent or guardian should drop off and pick up their child/children to reduce numbers outside school
  • Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household
  • Make good use of all available entry and exit points to the school site to avoid bottleneck
  • Refrain from lengthy face-to-face conversation with staff or other families; use digital communication methods during lockdown
  • Go straight home after dropping and/or collecting your child/children
  • Consider wearing a face covering during pick up and drop off

Thank you for your support and understanding – together we will slow the spread of COVID-19 and save more lives.

You can familiarise yourself with the latest restrictions on the official Government website.

Looking after your mental health and wellbeing during Coronavirus:  Information for Children and Young People – Oct 2020

November 2020
We’re sharing this information on behalf of Hertfordshire County Council and the Local Resilience Forum who support the countywide response to coronavirus.

Did you know that only 20% of people in Hertfordshire self-isolate when they are asked to by a nursery, school, college, workplace, Test and Trace or a health professional? 1 in 4 of us admitted that we’d still pop to the shops even if we had been asked to self-isolate.

We know it’s not easy and self-isolation can have a real impact on our lives, however if we’re asked to do it, it’s one of the most important things we can do to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

We’ve pulled together a guide which we hope simplifies some of the rules around self-isolation, the reason for the number of days you might be asked to self-isolate for (including as part of a school bubble), how to recognise symptoms of coronavirus and when to book a test.

Help is available to support you and your family should anyone from your household need to self-isolate, or if you’ve been affected by coronavirus in anyway – there is some information about the help available in the guide.

Thank you for continuing to play your part in the fight to reduce the impact of coronavirus in Hertfordshire, and for helping to keep our communities safe.
