Dear Members

Waltham Forest council have just issued the following advice regarding Coronavirus.

“You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus.

There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal.

We recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel to China during the forthcoming half term period. If so, please refer to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s latest travel advice via their website.”

Please also see the attached poster reminding us all of the need to follow basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.
