Our Island, Our Future

Update From Tiree Medical Practice 17th March 2020

TIREE MEDICAL PRACTICE

Many people on the island have been asking about keeping their children off school in light of the likely case of Coronavirus.Following further discussions earlier today we have been made aware that the school will likely re-open on Thursday and not Wednesday as originally planned.
As a practice we would advise the following:

If your child has underlying health conditions or if there is someone in your household who has underlying health conditions you should consider keeping your child or children off school.
If your children are healthy and you have concerns about contacting coronavirus we would also be supportive of a decision to keep your children off school but this would be parental choice and is not the general advice from public health or your school.
