Second covid case confirmed in St. John's school


Health officials have announced tonight that a second child from the isolating class 'bubble' at St. John's school has tested positive for covid-19.

It emerged on Thursday that St. John's had joined St. Michael's and St. Saviour's in having a class staying at home following a positive test result.

And then in a short statement tonight the government confirmed a second case from the same class:

"We can confirm that another student from the same bubble at St John’s Primary School has tested positive for Covid-19. To protect the identity of this child and respect the family’s privacy we are unable to comment any further.”

Previously the government had confirmed the class will be isolating, and 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.”

The news follows announcements about classes at St. Saviour's and St. Michael's Schools being sent home, following positive covid tests.
