A Flintshire primary school has taken action after a confirmed coronavirus case.

Pupils in year 4 and staff identified to have had close contacts of the confirmed case at St John the Baptist VA School in Penymynydd are now self-isolating for 14 day.

A spokesperson for Flintshire County Council said: “The County Council has been informed of and is advising on a confirmed case of Covid-19 at St John the Baptist VA School in Penymynydd.

The school has followed all the appropriate protocols and engaged with the NHS Test, Trace and Protect (TTP) Team and the Council’s Environmental Health Team.

Pupils and staff identified as close contacts of the confirmed case have been informed and are now self-isolating for 14 days in line with national guidance.

This advice relates only to the Year 4 cohort at the current time.

The school remains open and it is not necessary for any other child to self-isolate, stay away from school or to be tested, unless they are advised to do so by the TTP team or if they develop symptoms of Covid-19.

Parents are encouraged to remain calm but vigilant and not send their child to school if they are unwell. If a parent believes their child is showing symptoms of Covid-19 they should book a test by going to https://gov.wales/apply-coronavirus-covid-19-test”
