Three year groups and staff isolate


CHILDREN from three year groups at a Gwynedd primary school are isolating following a positive coronaviru­s result.

Youngsters in years four, five and six, as well as relevant staff, at Ysgol Llanllechi­d in Rachub are isolating after a child at the school tested positive.

A spokesman for Gwynedd Council said: “We can confirm a pupil from Ysgol Llanllechi­d has tested positive for coronaviru­s. “We are following Public Health Wales advice and the relevant pupils (years 4, 5 and 6 bubbles) and staff who are contacts to the individual are self-isolating for 14 days.

“The school has acted as quickly as possible and will be working closely with the local Test, Trace and Protect service to provide informatio­n to families.

“We send our best wishes to the pupil and urge those contacted by the Test, Trace and Protect service to follow the advice provided for the safety of family and the local community.”

The council added that anybody who develops coronaviru­s symptoms should isolate and immediatel­y request a test by calling 119 or visiting apply-coronaviru­s-covid-19-test.
