Cases of measles are rising across England, including among children and young people. The symptoms of measles, along with more information about the virus, can be found on the NHS website.

The Department for Education has published new advice for managing measles outbreaks, including advice for parents on what to do when they suspect their child may have measles.

Parents are advised that children with diagnosed measles should stay off nursery or school for at least 4 days from when the rash appears. More information on how to respond to rising cases of measles can be found by clicking here or on the image above.
