Dear Parent / Carer
As you know, Freman College had staff and students on a ski trip over half term in Northern Italy. We have been following national and county guidance in relation to this, as have all the local first, middle and primary schools.
I wanted to let you know that the Environmental Health Department at East Herts District Council has checked what Freman is doing on behalf of Professor Jim McManus, Director of Public Health and is pleased to confirm that we are following guidance correctly.
Hertfordshire County Council has issued the following general statement from the Director of Public Health:
‘As you will be aware, there has been a lot of information in the news about returning trips to Italy over half term in light of the recent measures put in place by the Italian Authorities on Coronavirus.
We would like to assure you that there is no cause for concern, none of the school trips run by Hertfordshire schools were within the ten towns which the Italian Authorities have put on quarantine measures and Hertfordshire residents remain at low risk.
Please visit www.gov.uk/coronavirus for the most up to date advice.'
