Confirmed Covid -19 case

10th January 2022
There have been confirmed cases, of COVID-19 within different year groups and to reassure you that we are working closely with the Government of Jersey’s Contact Tracing and Infection Control Teams in order to support and protect our children, staff and our community.
All Direct Contacts have been identified and informed. They will be required to undertake daily Lateral Flow Tests at home for the next 10 days.
Students can continue to attend school as long as their LFT test is negative, and they are not displaying COVID symptoms. All test results, regardless of whether they are positive or negative, should be submitted onto the online LFT portal for 10 days:

Any student who has one of the main COVID-19 symptoms must continue to immediately isolate and book a PCR test online or call the Coronavirus Helpline 0800 735 5566 to arrange a test, if they do not have a test already. They must not attend school until they received a negative test result.
