Advice Given on Management and Prevention of Norovirus Spread

There is a suspected outbreak of the winter vomiting bug in the South West area of the City.   General advice and guidance being given to Heads of Establishment on management and prevention of the spread of infection is as follows:

 

·         Children and Young People should be asked to wash hands on entering and then again, on leaving the classroom.  Soap should be used under running water; hand sanitizer is not effective and should not be used.

·         Where possible, the use of ICT suites and shared resources, such as iPads, pencils and crayons stored in buckets, should be limited.

·         The importance of washing hands on entering and leaving the toilet should be reiterated to staff, children and YP.

 

Catering and FM will be carrying out an appropriate level of cleaning to all affected buildings using Unisafe antibacterial solution.

 

Thank you for your cooperation
