Teacher and pupils self-isolating after primary school Covid case

School will be deep cleaned overnight

Bunscoill Rhumsaa will be deep cleaned overnight before opening tomorrow.

It follows advice from Public Health after a case of Covid-19 was detected in the Ramsey primary school.

Five new cases have been identified in the last 24 hours.

Government says it is liaising closely with the headteacher.

Education Minister Dr Alex Allinson says: "All parents have been informed and the class, their teacher, other close contacts and members of their households have been asked to self-isolate until contacted by contact tracing.

"If any parents are concerned that they or their child have Covid-19 symptoms they are asked to contact 111 and the school will update parents as information becomes available."
