Another class sent home after Covid-19 case is confirmed

A CLASS at St John Primary School has been sent home to isolate following a confirmed case of Covid-19.


It is the fourth school in the last two weeks to be affected by the virus. Class bubbles at St Saviour Primary School and St Michael's Prep were sent home earlier this month after a case was detected.

And yesterday the government revealed that a support worker at Le Rocquier had tested positive but had been off school for a week and therefore no one at the secondary was required to isolate.

In a statement, the Education Department said: 'We have been advised that there has been a confirmed positive case of Covid-19 identified at St John’s Primary School.

'Due to this, a class bubble will not be in school from Thursday, 22 October and the children are required to self-isolate. They will be tested at days five and eight, subject to parental or carer consent.

'All parents have been informed and the school remains open, following advice from Environmental and Public Health.

'The children in isolation will continue to receive school work and will carry on with their education. The premises has been disinfected and the school is continuing to follow the latest Public Health advice.'

By this morning there were 81 known active cases in Jersey.
