There is an update about your teen's NCS programme. 


Please see below:

Update: 02/08/2021

Though your teen's programme is now completed, we still take their health and wellbeing seriously. 

Over the weekend, we have been informed of 2 additional positive Covid-19 cases from participants who took part in Wave 3 NCS. 

Though these young people did not present any symptoms whilst in our building (including no signs of a temperature after our team checked at the front door in the morning), the PCR tests have come back positive. 

What does this mean? 

Activities on Friday 30th July were mixed between groups, therefore we strongly recommend your teen take a rapid lateral flow test. If this is positive, you need to arrange to have a PCR test.

Please note, we are not able to share names or information on who has tested positive due to data protection.

If you have been contacted by Track and Trace, follow the instructions you have been sent, including about self-isolation.

Update: 29/07/2021

Hello,

As you are aware, your teen's safety is a high priority of ours.

As a courtesy, we are letting you know about a covid update for our building.

A young person who recently attended our building has had a positive rapid lateral flow test. 

They did not test positive while attending the building.  They only had the positive test two days after attending our programme.

The last day the young person attended the programme was Tuesday 27th July. 

When they took a rapid lateral flow test on Wednesday 28th July, this was negative. They did not attend the programme this day out of precaution.

This morning (Thursday 29th July), another rapid lateral flow test was taken which showed as positive. 

The young person has completed a PCR test and we are waiting for the result.

The young person will not be returning to the programme.

At this time, there is no need to do anything or isolate your teen under current Government guidance, but we feel it is important to keep you informed. 

We do recognise that Covid-19 is of higher concern to some, therefore, if you would like your teen to remain at home and not return to the programme, we completely understand. If this is the case, please confirm this with us via email (use the email address below).

The programme is due to finish tomorrow (Friday 30th July) where we are hosting a 'Mini-Prom' for the programme as a celebration. 

If you would like to discuss anything further with us or have any concerns, please use the contact information below and ask to speak to Will Earp:
