  • the number of cases, incidence per 100,000 population, deaths and excess deaths
  • testing rates
  • contact tracing via NHS Track and Trace
  • London’s R number and Covid-19 triage data

Covid-19 information for parents

Since children returned to school in September, parents have been asking GPs about Covid-19 symptoms and self-isolation, and requesting letters. To support consistency of information and help practices with some of these questions, Covid-19 information for parents and a link to Test and Trace information has been shared with schools by the public health team. More information can be found in the government guidance.
