It was inevitable. Despite our best effects in school I've got 4 positive cases in my class and at least 2 in the other P1 class. Poor wee souls!
I've not been tracked and traced/pinged as a close contact as teachers aren't counted (don't get me started!) but I've had a letter saying I'm a 'short low key' risk. Whatever that means!!!! I also got a letter from the National Clinical Director for the Scottish government informing me how low risk schools are and that "IT" can't be transmitted by children.
It's all nonsense to avoid those working in schools self isolating if they've been in close contact. I mean you can't get much closer contact than 4 and 5 year olds hugging you, holding your hand, needing first aid etc etc for 6 hours a day.
I wear a mask. I sanitise my hands a million times a day. I clean everything in my class many times a day. I test myself daily. I'm fully vaccinated for "IT" plus I got my annual flu jab recently. I'm keeping myself as healthy as I can.
I hope it's enough 🙏
