Face coverings in schools – Latest public health instructions

15/09/2020 – Please note the latest Public Health Liverpool instructions received by Mrs Piercy today regarding face coverings in schools.

Essential use of face coverings

Dear Head teacher, levels of COVID-19 in Liverpool are high and increasing every day – we need to take urgent action.

It is now essential that parents and carers in Liverpool wear face coverings when collecting and dropping off their children at school.   All school staff should role model best practice by also wearing a face covering if supervising during collection or drop off.  Those who refuse or cannot wear face coverings should maintain social distancing of at least 2m from children and other parents/ carers.

We thank you in advance for ensuring greater levels of safety in your school and our communities.

Many thanks,

Matthew Ashton (Director of Public Health Liverpool City Council)

Thank you in advance for helping to keep our community safe and our school open.
