You are advised not to use anti inflammatories (eg I brufen, Voltarol, naproxen and there are others) for pain or high temperature. Use paracetamol instead. There seems to be a link between severe cases of covid19 affecting young people with no underlying illnesses and taking anti inflammatories.


We will keep you updated with information on this page as and when we have it. Please scroll down for the latest updates.

After the news yesterday, you will all know that school will be closed to some pupils from tomorrow. We have not yet received any further guidance on which children will continue to attend but we will clarify this as soon as we do. In the meantime, if you are employed in one of the following service industries, please e mail: keyworkers@baguleyhall.manchester.​sch.​uk from a work e mail account to advise us that your child (please provide the name) will require a school place. If you do not have a work e mail, please use a personal account, and include details of your place of employment.

Summary of the main guidance:

Symptoms to be concerned about are:

new continuous cough


high temperature.


If you or someone in your household becomes unwell  with the above symptoms THEY must stay at home for 7 days. After 7 days, if better and they no longer have a temperature, they can return to school/work. 

The remainder of the household should stay at home for 14 days from the first day of symptoms OR 7 days from becoming unwell themselves, if that is sooner. They can then return to work/school.


** The cough may persist beyond 7 days but this on its own is not a reason to stay at home.
