AIBU to think this advice by the school is incorrect?

Hopefully the photo has attached but basically it gives the usual advice - that if your child develops symptoms, they must isolate for 7 days and the rest of the household for 14 days etc.

But then it says if you're able, to Move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly or those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period

Surely there's a big risk there of spreading the virus from one home to another?

Meant to say, the letter doesn't state that it's a child but a newspaper story someone sent me does confirm it.

It says 'if you can'.

There will of course be a risk of spreading to the other household, but I assume that risk is lower than the risk of serious illness to the very vulnerable person.

Yes, can/able but I've never heard that sort of advice before. I thought it would be a no-no.
