If you step back a second and think about what you wrote you will come to a better decision. You worry he may have the virus but at the same time you would be happy for him to go to school. Those two things don't work together.

Most likely 100% over reaction

Just rang 111 and explained his symptoms. Their main concern was that he has been in contact with people that we have no idea where they have been (if and where they have recently traveled to etc )
But just to be safe do not let him near his sister who has type 1 diabetes.
Other than that just monitor his symptoms.
Panic over

If he had not fought on Saturday in an area that people had traveled to from across the country then I would not even bat an eyelid.
In my experience, thats exactly how my flu started. Fine the night before, throwing up by the morning.

I have a very bad cold at the moment, migraine, runny nose, sore throat and cough, but its just a cold.
Its good you rang 111 for your peace of mind, but its much more likely to be a cold than covid-19.

It is a worry being a parent, but would gently suggest that it is an over reaction. I am in the West and work in a pharmacy. Every other customer at the moment has a bit of a sore throat and a cough.

My sister is in bed with diagnosed Viral Flu at present, its doing the rounds apparently.
That started as a sore throat and a slight cough. Within a day she was in bed really ill. Having had flu twice before (she is susceptible & has had pleurisy before) so she did know that it was flu but her husband still rang the doctors because of her history. Doctor came and confirmed it was Flu. I have just come back from Canada where both DH & I had sore throats, his went within a day mine turned into a cold.
Thats the main trouble its the time for colds and flu & the media is causing panic causing people to suspect COVID-19 which is understandable in the present situation.
