Face Coverings on School Grounds
As infection rates continue to rise across the county, the Director of Public Health and the Director of Children and Family Services request that face coverings are worn by parents and carers at school pick up and drop off in Leicestershire.
Cases are rising nationally, but there are particular areas of concern in the county, and public health officials are advising residents to be vigilant in all day to day activities. It has been difficult for some parents to maintain social distancing at school gates, and this further measure will help prevent the spread of coronavirus. The advice remains the same: keeping your distance, getting a test only if you have covid symptoms, washing your hands and wearing a face covering where required. Parents and carers are asked to do everything they can to protect their families and friends.
Please can we therefore respectfully ask that visitors wear a face covering whilst on the school grounds with immediate effect.
