Are we allowed to have girls bake cupcakes wearing gloves and masks and following covid19 food preparation guidance?

The cupcakes will be made by one year group and distributed to girls in the school in different bubbles. Is this permissible?


Government guidance states that “School kitchens can continue to operate but must comply with the guidance for food businesses on coronavirus (COVID-19).” However, it would seem unlikely that children preparing food would necessarily be able to prepare food to the same food hygiene standard. COVID-19 is unlikely to be contracted via food, but it is theoretically possible. It might be best to avoid this activity for the time being unless additional precautionary measures are put in place to allow safe distribution.
