GMB@ Support Staff Members

Dear member

We have written to Dundee City Council to ask what guidelines and training are being given to school support staff who come in to contact with children and families who are told to self isolate or are diagnosed with the Coronavirus.

From our observations, it seems very little has been done other than to issue NHS guidelines, and we do not think that this is nearly enough to ensure your protection.

We are awaiting a response.

Please let us know what, if any training has been provided to you, or if you have any concerns.
