If you have any staff, children or children's parents/guardians who have been instructed to self-isolate, it's important that they understand what this means.

The purpose of self-isolation is to protect the rest of the community from the potential spread of the Coronavirus, so it's not just a matter of staying away from the early learning centre - people who are self-isolating are also required to stay away from other public areas too, including the gym, the supermarket, etc.
