Pupils and staff at Rhyl primary school isolating after positive coronavirus case – North Wales Live

Pupils and staff at a primary school in Denbighshire are isolating after a positive coronavirus case.

A total of 23 pupils and four staff members at Ysgol Christchurch in Rhyl are isolating after the positive Covid-19 case was reported.

A statement on behalf of the school shared on social media said: “For your information 23 pupils and four members of staff at Ysgol Christchurch, Rhyl will be required to self-isolate until 22nd March following a confirmed Covid-19 case associated with the school.

“All parents and carers have been informed and both the local authority and the school have consulted with Public Health Wales.

“Ysgol Christchurch remains open and is working closely with Public Health Wales, the local authority and NHS Wales Test, Trace and Protect to ensure that all the appropriate measures are in place to protect students, staff and the wider community.”

It is the latest Denbighshire school in recent weeks to report that children are isolating due to Covid-19 cases.

Last week, more than 50 pupils and staff were told to self-isolate after positive coronavirus cases were confirmed at two schools.

St Brigid’s School in Denbigh and Ysgol Llywelyn in Rhyl asked students and staff to self-isolate following confirmed Covid-19 cases associated with the schools.

Twenty three pupils and three staff members at St Brigid’s School and 24 pupils and three staff members at Ysgol Llywelyn have been asked to self isolate until March 20.

The police stopped 2,500 cars in the region last week, one visitor from Wigan was sent packing after saying he wanted to visit Talacre Lighthouse.
