Confirmed cases of Covid-19 in schools

13 days ago

Where a school has any confirmed cases of Covid-19 there are robust procedures in place and the Test, Trace, Protect process is followed. If any pupils are required to self-isolate, the school will directly contact parents.

The process of testing and contact tracing is part of the ‘new normal’ and schools follow these guidelines carefully.

Risk assessments have been carried out in all of our schools and a comprehensive range of measures to limit the risk to staff and children have been put in place.

For further information on what schools are doing to protect children and staff and what happens when there is a positive case, as well as guidance and advice on testing and self-isolation, please see our comprehensive FAQ section.

It is important to remember that coronavirus has not gone away. Cases are rising across the country including Carmarthenshire, and in particular the Llanelli area of the county due to its high population. It is inevitable that where there are cases in the community, we will see cases in our schools. The presence of cases linked to a school does not necessarily imply that transmission occurred in that setting.

We must all remain vigilant and continue to follow the advice around social distancing, washing hands, face coverings, self-isolation and testing.
