We have had a positive lateral flow test last night from a member of the year 5 bubble. After taking advice from public health I need to close the year 5 bubble for 10 days. We are waiting the result of a PCR test to confirm this. If the test is negative I can re open the bubble. If it is positive then the bubble will remain closed.
We must assume at the moment that it is positive and act accordingly as this delta strain is more infectious. Please see the letter below to explain the self isolation rules.
I know that this is so hard for all of the children and for you as parents, it is not a situation either of us wants to be happening.
