CAFCASS-Covid-19-Advice for families on effective co-parenting and child arrangements
Helpful advise published by CAFCASS in light of the pandemic.

The pdf can be found under "Advice for families on effective co-parenting and child arrangements" at:

"Unless there are justified medical/self-isolation issues – or some future nationally issued guidance or expectation associated with leaving the house in your area – children should also maintain their usual routine of spending time with each of their parents. If there is a Child Arrangements Order in place this should be complied with unless to do so would put your child, or others at risk. This will help your child to feel a sense of consistency, whilst also reassuring them that the parent they don't always live with is safe and healthy."

"Unless you or your child has an underlying health condition or other vulnerability, transporting them from one home to the other would usually be a legitimate journey (based on the current government guidance)."

Remember social distancing and self-isolation are two separate things as per official guidance.

Social distancing refers to the avoidance of close interaction with other people in groups or public places.

Self-isolation refers to isolating yourself at home away from everybody for 14 days (the incubation period) if you develop any of the Covid-19 symptoms, however mild. The 14 days start from the day the first symptom is noticed.

Following this 14 day period the self-isolation ceases.

If your symptoms worsen at any stage you would need to dial NHS 111.
